Whether the bottle is transparent and whether the label is easy to separate becomes the basis for judging the level of recycling
At the beginning, the Ministry of Environment will only build a recycling system suitable for high-quality "colorless plastic bottles and drinking water bottles", and after discussions with the local government and related companies, it will determine the pilot project area in December this year, and promote it from January to June next year.
In addition, in order to support the classification process starting in January next year, classification support funds will be provided to classification companies, and the support funds will be distributed according to the quality level
The grade benchmark is expected to be differentiated from the existence of impurities or the degree of mixing other materials in discarded bottles, and considering the management system constructed by the classification company
In addition, the rating results of classified companies will be published annually through the Ministry of Environment's website to ensure transparency in the operation of the system
Lee Young-ki, resource recycling policy officer at the Ministry of Environment, said: "We plan to improve the independent recycling system for all recycled products in the future, starting with improving the PET bottle recycling system
