It's always interesting to see how folks in other parts of the world do things differently — or the same — as you.
And that's certainly the case for plastics recycling.
With that in mind, the Polyolefin Recycling Co. of South Africa is giving us some insight through a series of five videos the non-profit organization produced to promote plastics recycling in that country.
Polyco was formed by polyolefin converters “to promote the collection and recycling of post-consumer polyolefin packaging containers.” Converters of polyolefins — polyethylene and polypropylene — pay a voluntary recycling levy for each ton of polymer purchased from Sasol Ltd. or Safripol Ltd. in South Africa or imported. The levy of 110 South Africa rand equaled $7.74 per ton on Nov 18.
