Steel

Steel packaging can be recycled.
  • It is important to avoid components other than those in steel because they can reduce the efficiency of the magnetic packaging sorting.
  • An excessive quantity of non-steel elements can lead to an overstepping of the recycler’s specifications and reduce the quality of its recycling.
  • If a non-steel component cannot be avoided, it must be completely detachable or at least the glued surface must be limited to the strict minimum.
