The iRec pilot project, developed by ACR+ member Cascais Ambiente, paves the way for the introduction of Cascais' Deposit System with Return (SDR), which will be implemented when national legislation is published. In practice, iREC is an SDR that gives points to residents who correctly separate glass, PET plastic and metal drinks packaging. Since the project was launched in January 2021, more than 70 tonnes of packaging has been sent for recovery, with the majority being PET plastic bottles (62%), followed by glass (27%) and cans (11%) in third place. The quality of the material collected by the machines, which perform automatic sorting, is one of the advantages of this system that allows the collection of recyclable material without contamination.
