Only agree to collect what you are confident you can deliver. If you are struggling to meet your target, it's important that you change the quantity you have committed to in your PlastX app.
COLLECT THE RIGHT KIND OF PLASTIC
When you have committed to collect a certain type of plastic, you can ONLY include that kind of plastic in your collection. If you submit the wrong kind of plastic, or if you include something other than plastic, your collection will be rejected.
But don't leave plastic in the environment. If you are looking for PET, and you find some HDPE, you can always pick it up to include in another collection later.
KNOW YOUR PLASTIC
It's important to understand the different kinds of plastic so that your collection will always be accepted. Check you knowledge with this helpful guide.
GUIDE FOR COLLECTORS
Your safety is THE most important thing.
Always wear protective clothing (gloves and footwear at least) - and never try to collect a piece of plastic if it's dangerous to do so. And remember - only people of legal working age can collect plastic for PlastX.
