Waste collection remains a problem

THE ONLY Slovak processor of multilayer combined materials, the Kuruc company, processed about 3,000 tons of waste packaging last year, much below its actual capacity. The problem is that out of about 10,000 tons of multilayer combined materials placed on the Slovak market annually, only less than one third is collected for recycling, the TASR newswire wrote.

“Our capacities enable processing of bigger amounts, but the amount of collected [so-called] tetrapacks remains a problem,” said František Kurucz, director of the company which has been processing multilayer combined materials into composite boards and products for the construction industry for 17 years.
