Industrial packaging

In principle, the majority of conventional industrial packaging in PE, PP, EPS, paper/cardboard, wood and steel can be recycled. To be recycled, the packaging materials cannot be contaminated or soiled. As much as possible it is necessary to avoid packaging that are made of different materials.
