Introducing POLYCO
Who is Polyco

Polyco PRO NPC is a non-profit company focused on making waste a valuable resource that works for our economy. We aim to grow the collection and recycling of plastic packaging in South Africa, to promote the responsible use and reuse of this plastic packaging and to end plastic waste in the environment.

Our Work

Polyco is focused on three key strategic pillars – we invest in recycling innovation for new end use market development, recycling infrastructure for capacity building and efficiency and recycling education and awareness in South Africa and we collaborate with multiple stakeholders to achieve success in these areas.
