Collected in a baled fraction, in clear or pink bags, receptacles, containers and compactors.
Controlled visually by driver and upon arrival at waste reception facility. Here, the plastic is compacted before being sent for recycling.
The plastic goes to the local waste-to-energy plant for energy extraction.
