ARNHEM – A trial with the separated collection of plastic was a surprising success in 21 Dutch municipalities. A spokesperson for waste processing company Sita in Arnhem confirmed on Thursday a report on this in the Telegraaf. The company wants to introduce separated plastic collection elsewhere in the country as well.

Residents in the participating municipalities, which included Arnhem, Leusden, Nunspeet and Harderwijk, have been able to hand in plastic containers separate from their other household waste since the summer. 1,500 cubic metres of plastic has been collected for recycling so far.

"We were positively surprised by the quantity and quality of the plastic handed in. People took the experiment very seriously," says the spokesperson from Sita.
