Should packaging consisting of PET 12 my, nylon 20 my and LDPE 90 my with the coding >PE+PA+PET<7 be collected in the separate collection for plastic packaging?

A pack made in this way is a multilayer plastic packaging, and must be collected in the plastic collection. It should be noted that all packaging can be disposed of in separate collection, whether it is recyclable or not in the state of current technologies, without prejudice to the good rules for quality separate collection (for example, always empty the packaging of its contents, reduce volume when possible). Thanks to the CONAI – Supply Chain Consortia system, the packaging that can be sent and used for recycling will follow that specific flow; the others will be used in any case for energy recovery.

An evaluation of the packaging’s recyclability is one of the additional pieces of information that a company may choose to display on the packaging, but this is independent of the information regarding the correct disposal of the packaging.
