Joint Ventures with Safripol


Our bulk storage bags work just as hard as the waste pickers, buy-back centres and recycling projects do. Waste pickers use the bags to carry and store the PET bottles they collect until they have enough to take to their nearest buy-back centre and exchange for cash.

The buy-back centres also use these bags to store the material purchased until they, in turn, are ready to sell the feedstock to PETCO’s recycling partners. In 2021, our joint venture with Safripol has allowed us to support seven local municipalities plus 24 recycling projects across eight provinces with 1 775 bulk storage bags – and there are more to come.


In partnership with Voting Member Safripol, PETCO sponsored the following:
• In Limpopo: 200 collection bins with stickers for the Thulamela Local Municipality and eight collection bins with stickers for the Thabazimbi Local Municipality.
• In Free State: 48 collection bins with stickers for KEE Recycling.
• In Gauteng: 20 collection bins with stickers for the Dinokeng Game Reserve, recycling centre signage for the African Reclaimers Organisation (ARO) as well as 400 collection bins with stickers and 50 000 recycling bags, and eight collection bins for the River Club Golf Course.
