FTI is Förpackningsinsamlingen (the Packaging Collection Service). Our assignment is to collect packaging so it can be recycled.
Everyone wins when you recycle
Every time you recycle a milk carton, shampoo bottle, glass jar or bottle cap, you are contributing to a more sustainable Sweden.
By working together, we can be the best in the world at recycling

How recycling works
When you separate your packaging, you are giving milk cartons, shampoo bottles, sardine cans and glass bottles a new lease of life. Join the recycling process from a new to a recycled packaging!
The recycling journey
What FTI does
What we do
Our mission is to help Sweden recycle more. We are not profit-driven – we are driven by the climate gain and are convinced that Sweden can be the best in the world at recycling.
Deep dive into the recycling process
How it works
Learn how paper, plastic, metal and glass packaging are recycled.
Recycle for a healthier planet
No one can do everything, but everyone can do something
You sort your packaging and we collect it. If everyone lends a hand, things can really happen.
For a circular future
From new to used to new again. We make sure the packaging you sort is used to make new packaging and products.
Conserve our natural resources
By recycling packaging, we don’t need to use as many trees, oil or other finite resources.

The Material World
There is a hungry gang living in the recycling bins that eats different types of packaging. The Materialites teach young children all about recycling.
Frequently asked questions
FTI is owned by four materials companies: Svensk Plaståtervinning, Returkartong, Metallkretsen and Svensk GlasÅtervinning.
All packaging that FTI collects is transported to recycling facilities that recycle as much of the collected material as possible. The material that can’t be recycled is sent for energy recovery and used as a substitute for fossil raw materials in industry.
