The Recycling Sector Overview

South Africa is a world leader in the recycling sector. South Africa has one of the most effective recycling industries worldwide and according to a Plastics SA report, SA’s recycling rate is also a step ahead of Europe. SA currently recycles 46% of all plastic (higher than most countries), 70% of paper, 72% of metal, and 70% of glass. This means the country has one of the most effective recycling industries worldwide.

The country reportedly has a minimum of 300 recycling companies that vary in size, ranging from smaller enterprises to larger scale companies. According to Aurora sustainability blog, (which focuses on safety environmental research), South Africa generated 42 million tons of waste in 2020. With the ever-rising global temperatures, people are becoming aware of the impact pollution has on the planet. 

Recycling in itself enables businesses to use greener technologies, improve production to conserve energy, reduce pollution, and eliminate unwanted waste. Recycling businesses are relatively easy to set up, they has a positive environmental impact, and are part of a highly successful sector.
