About Polyco

Polyco Plastics Responsibility Organisation NPC, trading as Polyco PRO NPC, is a non-profit company focused on making used plastic packaging a valuable resource that works for our economy.


To grow the collection and recycling of plastic packaging in South Africa, to reduce the amount of plastic packaging going to landfill and to end plastic waste in the environment. Polyco does this by collaborating with multiple stakeholders, by investing in recycling innovation and infrastructure in South Africa, and by educating both the industry and the consumer about recycling through our subsidiary brands, Million+ and Packa-Ching.

Polyco is now a one-stop shop for all plastic packaging recycling, supporting producers, retailers and brand owners to manage your products’ life cycle responsibly under the new EPR regulations.


In 2021, after over a decade of success, we increased our scope to include the representation of all plastic packaging types under mandatory Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations through the merger with industry stalwarts, Vinyl Loop and the Polystyrene Association of South Africa.


Under the EPR regulations, legislated from 5 November 2021, producers, through their PROs or independent schemes, are legally mandated to manage their packaging products at end of life in order to grow the downstream reuse and recycling of their materials to achieve the published legislated targets.


Polyco is proud to announce the registration of over 600 member organisations who are committed to increasing the recycling of plastic packaging in South Africa, and we invite you to join us.
