About

Plastic in general:

What is “Plastic Containers and Wrapping”?

Under the Law for Promotion of Selective Collection and Recycling of Containers and Packaging, Containers and Wrapping are defined as those items "which become unnecessary when the contents have been consumed or removed".
"Plastic Containers" are bottles other than PET bottles, boxes, bags or the like into which merchandise is placed, and “Plastic Wrapping” is sheets or the like in which merchandise is wrapped.

Plastic Containers and Wrapping Discarded from Households.

Business entities display "Identification Marks" on containers and wrapping to facilitate the sorting of discarded items by consumers when they put out the waste and to promote selective collection by municipalities.
