Recycling means reintroducing waste material into the production process, as an addition to primary resources. The use of waste as secondary raw material is economically justified. By using old material not only is primary raw material saved, but energy is conserved as well. This paper presents the most frequently recycled waste materials, the ways in which they are collected, and subsequent classification. The sorting procedures are mentioned, with throughput capacity an important parameter expressed in tons/hour. The higher the throughput capacity, the better the effect of sorting.
