The following criteria are to be considered at least:
1. are sorting and recovery infrastructures for high-quality mechanical recycling available for this packaging?
2. is the packaging sortable and, if necessary, separable into its components (if separation is required for high-quality mechanical recycling)?
3. are there packaging components or substances which, according to recycling practice, may impede successful recovery?
The available recyclable portion ultimately determines the portion of the packaging that can be recycled.
