Why PETCO supports SST:
PETCO (the PET Plastic Recycling Company NPC) works to fulfil the South African PET industry’s role of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) by minimising the environmental impact of post-consumer PET on the South African landscape.
PETCO and what they do:
Financed by a voluntary recycling fee paid by our members, we have collected over 500 000 tonnes of post-consumer PET bottles for recycling to date, creating some 50 000 income opportunities for small and micro collectors annually – changing their lives and those of their families in immeasurable ways.
Plastic bottles are not trash
