the Environmental Protection Agency recommends that the phase-out can be in the form of a transitional arrangement, so that the existing schemes in the municipalities are allowed to expire, so that from 2025 metal, glass and plastic can no longer be mixed in Denmark.

The Danish Environmental Protection Agency's professional assessment is based in particular on three studies prepared during the period January 2018 - April 2020. These are Environmental Project 2066, which examines, among other things, the quality difference between combined and separate collection, Environmental Project 2111, which delves further into the mix of metal, glass and plastic and most recently Ramboll has tested the quality of the fractions from the mixing of metal, glass and plastic.
