Rinki eco take-back points are for household packaging waste. Safety is the main reason why we chose the particular containers and the sizes of their openings. For example, small openings ensure that no one can climb into a container, which could result in serious injuries.
If the containers had large openings, people could put things other than packaging waste into them, such as large objects or mixed waste, and this would make recycling more difficult. The containers would also be filled too quickly if waste other than packaging was placed in them.
This would cause littering and inconvenience for people recycling their packaging as the containers would not have room for packaging waste. This would also be the case if the openings were large enough for material to be taken out; waste would be left on the ground.
We understand that it can be frustrating if you cannot put large quantities of materials into the containers in one go. The size of the openings was carefully considered and they are deemed to be the best way to ensure successful recycling. Conscientious recyclers will be happy to know that the right type of waste is recycled.
