The numerical data illustrating the scale of the problems connected with the utilization of plastics wastes in Western Europe were presented. The main systems of collecting plastics wastes were discussed, with a particular attention paid to systems adopted in the F.R.G. The individual steps in the preparation of plastics wastes for processing were characterized, a.o. the method of classification with hydrocydoncs.
