FIVE-POINT PROGRAM

The Swedish Government has adopted higher recycling targets as of 2020. You can see the targets, and FTI’s current progress, below.

FTI has promised to do more than meet these targets, we aim to exceed them. To help us achieve this goal, we have adopted a development plan with five points – the Five-Point Program.

The Five-Point Program defines a clear mission for our organization. It requires that FTI retains responsibility for the collection, that a definition of those producers with legally imposed producer responsibility is established, and that a regulatory authority is introduced in combination with a clear regulatory framework for a pre-approved collection system.

Every month, we publish in Swedish what we have most recently achieved in each development area. The five points briefly entail:

1. Recycling stations. A clear focus on the refurbishment and care of recycling stations.

2. Curbside collection services. A focus on expanded curbside collection services for households, up to 50 percent.

3. Partnerships. Clearly defined partnership agreements with all of Sweden’s 290 municipalities. FTI also aims to continue implementing various development and partnership projects with municipalities and other stakeholders

4. Quality control. Regular quality assessments along the entire recycling chain, where household ratings serve as guidance for improvement.

5. Communication initiative. FTI aims to develop support for municipalities, to ensure that households receive effective information.
