The model advocated by SDR Portugal is the most effective and efficient way to help Portugal meet sustainability goals.
Reduction of contaminants
between 18 and 26%.
Reduction in operational and logistical costs
Reduction in marine litter
PET packaging recovered
SDR will more than double the quantity of high-quality recovered PET packaging, providing an opportunity to invest in doubling national PET recycling capacities.
A reduction of 30 to 40% in total littering and between 70 to 90% in beverage packaging littering, leading to a reduction of between 20 and 40 million euros in cleaning costs per year in Portugal.
SDR Portugal estimates the creation of over 1,500 direct and indirect jobs.
Operational and logistical cost reduction
For municipalities and SGRUs, it can range from 9 to 20 million euros per year.
