Unfortunately, only a couple of people are active in the group ;-(
I started collecting but did not get much further.
To my knowledge, no one in Finland has yet managed to start a workplace or if they did thet are not on the map at https://map.preciousplastic.com/, did not mention it in forums.
@w2mjohnoak might be able to help?
All the best, Arnie.
@mdem: Thanks for your chart, I had exactly the same idea, much of the plastic I collect does not bear any recycling information either because it is in many parts/broken or the manufacturer could not be bothered.
There is a similar topic on this at https://davehakkens.nl/community/forums/topic/how-to-seperate-pet-and-pvc-plastics-in-5-min/
I don’t know if it makes sense to bother to sort PET and PVC. According to @mathijsstroober in the topic https://davehakkens.nl/community/forums/topic/toxic/, PVC is harmful (releases toxins) and PET must be handled with care.
I am attaching my version, I did not test it myself and it is based on Dave’s sheet ”Floating properties” ie. 2_Floating properties plastic.pdf.
Can someone please let me know if it makes sense? Are there mistakes? Please feel free to contact me if you want to edit it/improve it/have the text file. It would be great to be able to recycle PET at some point!
