Training for paper-cardboard collectors

Paper-cardboard collectors play a crucial role in the recycling chain. They assess whether the paper-cardboard has been correctly sorted and disposed of. They often are also the first point of reference for residents. Good training ensures that they can do their job in the best possible manner.


The following themes are covered during the training program:

  • A refresher course on the sorting rules for paper-cardboard
  • The recycling process and the collector’s role
  • Dealing with residents’ complaints
  • Ergonomics and safety

The training ends with a practical example.
