Instruction for the recycling of big bags

Here we describe how you can recycle your big bags.

1

Empty big bag

When the big bag is emptied, be extra careful to make sure that no material is left in the big bags.

To make it easier for our customers and end customers, we help with the collection of the big bags. In the countries where we ourselves are active, the booking of transports is handled via Accon Greentech AB. In countries where we ourselves are not active, we have partners who collect the empty Big Bags.

Do not send big bags to incineration plant

Big Bags that are not classified for use in dangerous goods should not be sent for incineration. Secure with your waste collection company that your Big Bags go to mechanical recycling.

Big bags should primarily go to mechanical recycling

Big Bags should primarily go into a process of mechanical recycling to produce a new recycled material that can be used to produce new Big Bags. If the quality of the material does not live up to the requirements for manufacturing new Big Bags, there are many other products that are excellent for extending the material's life cycle.

Recycled material will be used for new big bags

The finished raw material that we get access to will be used for new Big Bags where customers can accept a recycled plastic in their big bags. Materials that cannot be used for Big Bags go to other products such as strings and plastic pallets.
