Sorting of beverage packages

20.09.2022

Beverage packages should be sorted according to the material in the correct transport unit. Proper sorting is important so that the material of beverage packages can be recycled.


Cans

Sort cans (also non-deposit) as intact and empty to a Palpa manual bag (red print).


Plastic bottles

Sort plastic bottles with Palpa's deposit marking as intact and empty to a Palpa manual bag.

NOTE! Non-deposit plastic bottles must not be sorted into deposit material, as the recyclability of the material cannot be guaranteed. Due to the recycling of plastic, different types of plastic must not be mixed. In addition, the wrong materials in the packaging can prevent recycling.

Non-deposit plastic bottles can be recycled by returning them to a plastic collection point or as an energy fraction.


Glass bottles

Sort beverage bottles of glass as intact and empty to a glass container.

Note! It is not allowed to put refillable glass bottles to Palpa's glass container. Return them in a crate or on plastic tray to Hartwall.

Impurities prevent recycling


Returns must not contain rubbish or other impurities as they will prevent recycling.

If the return is made in violation of the instructions, Palpa is entitled to sanction the return location for noncompliance with the instructions. The beverage supplier has the right to refuse to accept packaged transport units in violation of the instructions.

Remember to follow Palpa's sorting and return instructions in all returns.
