First technical annex on separate collection and recycling of compostable bioplastics packaging. A historic agreement, which allows our country to take a step forward in separate waste collection by encouraging the correct disposal of a material that is becoming increasingly widespread in Italian homes.
CONAI and Biorepack, together with ANCI – the Association of Italian Municipalities, signed the technical annex which regulates the collection, transport and processing of compostable bioplastic packaging waste together with municipal food waste.
Municipalities and operators that sign a partnership agreement will receive financial payments to cover the costs of collection, transport and processing.
The higher the quality of the waste collected, the greater the payments that will be made. The 20-page technical annex sets out all the obligations and commitments that will be incumbent on both the Biorepack Consortium and the municipalities or their delegates that sign the agreement.
The focus on the quality of the collection of compostable bioplastic packaging waste is also demonstrated by the payments that are made to municipalities or their delegates. The technical annex specifies four quality bands, dependent on the presence of extraneous matter, i.e. the impurities found in the collected food waste. Those who limit impurities to within 5% will receive €129 per tonne; as the percentage of impurities rises, so the payment will decrease to a minimum of €63 per tonne. No payment will be made for waste containing over 20% impurities.
