Mixed waste
Contains unsorted waste and can consist of almost any type of waste. The waste gets emptied at a sorting plant where the different factions get picked up. Afterwards the remaining waste gets reclaimed (10%), used as energy (75%) or goes to a depot (15%).

The gypsum gets distinguished from the cardboard and treated on the surface. The gypsum powder gets used as biofuel in the production of new gypsum plates.
The plastic gets grinded, washed and degranulated to enable recycling (50%). Examples of new plastic products are plastic bags, toys, containers etc.
