Aluminium packaging

Aluminium packaging can be recycled.
  • Aluminized plastics cannot be recycled.
  • Avoid adding components other than aluminium items because they may reduce the efficiency of the packaging sorting carried out by Eddy current.
  • An excessive quantity of non-aluminium elements could lead to an overstepping of the recycler’s specifications and reduce the quality of its recycling.
  • If the addition of a non-aluminium component cannot be avoided, it must be fully detachable or at least the glued surface must be limited to the strict minimum.
