Isontina Ambiente collects plastic packaging together with cans and small metal objects; this material is sent to the Moraro plant to be sorted and then to the relevant processing plants.

Plastic packaging includes all the bottles and flasks containing products for personal hygiene or drinks. Also polystyrene containers (for example ice cream trays) fall into the same category as well as plastic plates and glasses (since April 2012).

In the municipalities where the door-to-door collection is in force, plastic packaging is collected in translucent bags that are delivered free of charge at home once a year; those who run out of stock before the end of the year can buy more bags in authorized points of sale.

The condominium blocks with at least 14 families having enough space inside their property can call the toll-free number and ask for a large container that will have to be placed on the road on the evening before the day of collection (see calendar).
