PETCO, the PET Recycling Company, is a company that takes Extended Producer Responsibility (something that, in the industry, we call EPR) for the end-of-life solution for the PET bottle sector on a collaborative basis, both financially and operationally.
PETCO supports recyclers with community programmes, educational material and awareness programmes on recycling. PETCO promotes recycling efficiency in the production, design, conversion, collection and recycling of post-consumer PET plastic.
We are an industry-driven and industry-financed environmental solution for post-consumer PET. Funded by a voluntary levy paid by our members who purchase PET resin, we’re proud to say that since our inception in 2004, we’ve helped make a truly positive impact in the South Africa.
Our partners are many and varied but they all share an ambitious vision to shape the way we manage waste in South Africa. From government to our shareholder and associate members, we’re working together to make positive progress and bring about real change in South Africa today.
