Secondary Processing

Nearly two thirds of the plastic bottles (61 per cent) used by Israeli residents are placed in special containers and then used as raw materials for the production of new bottles and other products.

According to the Raw Israel station, Israel ranks one of the highest-developed countries (OECD) at the secondary level plastic processing Although containers for the collection of used bottles appeared relatively recently in most Israeli cities.

However, as reported by an environmental organization, a large part of the plastic bottles in Israel are still thrown into " ordinary " urns or just outside, resulting in significant soil and seawater pollution from the coastal strip.

It will be recalled that Israel has a collateral price law for almost all types of glass bottles (30 agorot), but the law mainly covers small plastic bottles (0, 33, 0, 5 litres).
