Abstract: In this paper, we prove that separable subgroups have bounded packing in ambient groups. The notion bounded packing was introduced by Hruska and Wise, and, in particular, our result confirms a conjecture of theirs which states that each subgroup of a virtually polycyclic group has the bounded packing property.
