Abstract

Plastic waste as a separate component (fraction) of waste management can be defined as waste from production and consumption. Waste from the production and is also characterized as industrial waste and waste from manufacturing processes. It formed directly in the production and finalization of the semi product. It is basically the best quality plastic waste. Its advantage is the fact that it is almost always a waste of single-well-defined and well-known material from which it is largely possible to do full recycling products. Recycling of this material type in Slovak republic is relatively well settled. Waste from consumption i.e. mainly waste from used products and packaging may occur on two levels and a waste eg. from supermarket chains, warehouse,industry(industrial packaging), waste from municipal sector,etc..
