The bottle-to-bottle way I go

I'm a little teapot, short and stout – well, actually, I am a PET bottle, not a teapot at all. I was used for iced tea, however. Now that my owner finished with me, how will my life go on? Will they just leave me on the picknick table in the park? Toss me into the bin after a run? Let me float on the duck pond until I inevitably end up on the other side of the shore where I will be swallowed by weeds, never decaying? Or will they take me to the store and recycle me, so that I may end up with you?

Find your perfect recycling solution at the TOMRA Test Center

Recycling plant operators might be aware of this: Finding the right solution for your particular need is not always easy. In my case, my plant required a new and effective machine to sort plastic bottles, separating PET bottles from other materials and colored PET before they can be shredded and sorted once more. My old equipment, consisting of machines I bought ten years ago, did not seem to be suitable for my facility's needs anymore, its outcome was often imprecise and its maintenance was time-consuming and thus costly.

At this point, I contacted TOMRA Sorting Recycling, inquiring on a new sorting solution to meet my needs – and was invited to have my materials tested at the TOMRA Test Center. But let me tell the whole story!
