All objects made of hard plastics must be handed in at the waste recycling point. Consider, for example, buckets, watering cans, downspouts or gutters. It, therefore, does not belong to household plastic waste or PBD (plastic packaging, cans and drink cartons).
It is important that the material exclusively consists of hard plastic. A helmet or surfboard contains material other than hard plastic on the inside and therefore does not belong in this container. Garden furniture is collected separately at the waste recycling point, please refer to the flow of garden furniture (plastic) for this.
What happens to the waste?
We collect plastic separately. It then goes to a company that grinds or melts it down and then moulds it into new plastic products.
