Scaling up: Giving SMMEs the tools to succeed

Coming on board with Liquid Board Cartons

You know that PETCO has helped to facilitate the successful collection and recycling of PET bottles in South Africa since 2004.

Now we are thrilled to announce that we have welcomed our first Liquid Board Packaging (LBP) member and will be administering an Extended Producer Responsibility scheme for this packaging on their behalf.

You will recognise LBP as those paperboard cartons in which your long-life milk, fruit juice and ready-made custard products are sold.

LBP and PET make perfect companion materials when it comes to PETCO’s EPR schemes, as they are both 100% recyclable, end up in the same waste stream, and can be collected and recycled within South Africa’s existing capacity and infrastructure.

Scroll down to find out more about the connection between PET and LBP – and how you can incorporate it into your recycling routine.

Enjoy this bumper issue!
