Samenvatting

The composition of Dutch separately collected post-consumer plastic packaging waste has been determined for 23 different municipalities during the time period of 2010-2013. In this report weighted averages are presented based on the previously analysed samples. The most important packaging types present are in order of relevance: PE film, PET rigid packages (mostly trays and thermoformed trays), PP rigid packages (mostly butter tubs, yoghurt pots), PE flasks and PET bottles. The variance in the presented data is, however, large due to regional variance and seasonal influences. The reported weight-average compositional values should therefore only be used as indicate values.
