English Abstract
This report presents the results of sorting analyses with household waste, collected after separate collection at source in the municipality of Breda. The sorting analyses form part of a pilot project, called 'Model Breda'. The main purpose of this project is to achieve a more extended reduction of the amount of household (packaging) waste by separate collection at source, as mentioned in the Packaging Convention, an agreement between the Government and the packaging industry. In Breda, household waste is collected in four different fractions: - a putrescible fraction (garden-, fruit- and vegetable waste: "GFT). - a paper/cardboard-fraction ; - a fraction of plastic-, metal- and drink-packaging (laminated cardboard) ; - a residual fraction. After a pilot period in two districts (may-december 1992), this collection system will be gradually scaled up to all districts of the municipality Breda unitil may 1994. In may 1993, sorting analyses have been carried out to investigate the composition, purity and response of the separated collected waste in the already scaled up high-rise and low-rise districts. In this report the results are being discussed and compared with results of sorting analyses which took place in two pilot districts of Breda, september 1992.
