Through our cooperation with strong local partners such as Altstoff Recycling Austria AG (ARA), we aim to further increase collection and recycling rates in Austria towards our goal of a world without waste.

For the collection of packaging waste, ARA provides consumers with approx. 1.86 million collection containers available. In addition, 1.7 million households are connected to the yellow bag collection. Three out of four PET bottles are already collected separately using the ARA system. This enables them to be recycled and processed into a high-quality raw material for new PET bottles.
