Training for PMD collectors

PMD collectors play a crucial role in the recycling chain. They assess whether the PMD bags have been correctly sorted or not, and apply red rejection stickers where necessary. They are often 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: how and why?
  • Role of the collector in the recycling chain
  • Visual inspection of the PMD bags
  • Applying the rejection stickers
  • Dealing with residents’ complaints
  • Ergonomics and safety

The training ends with a practical example.
