the ultimate guide to mixed waste sorting
Prioritize plastic recovery and recyclability
When we consider the numerous benefits that plastics provide us – from a convenience, flexibility, and safety standpoint – we can't deny its advantages. We also can’t deny the great urgency toward making this material more sustainable. In particular, what we do with this material once its initial use is fulfilled.
Mixed Waste Sorting is a solution to the plastic pollution problem that we can implement now, and it is the basis of our new white paper, The Ultimate Guide to Mixed Waste Sorting. By collecting and sorting mixed waste materials before they are burned or tossed into landfills, we can avoid up to 730 million tonnes of CO2 emissions by 2030.
Within The Ultimate Guide to Mixed Waste Sorting, we explore:
- Current policies, legislation, and laws, and the urgent need for infrastructure to capture mixed waste materials for recycling
- MWS as a solution to replacing virgin materials and enhancing the circularity of high-quality recycled content.
- How MWS can cost-effectively reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
- Various GHG emissions comparisons (secondary vs. virgin materials, waste direct vs. before incineration and landfill).
