Product Description

Recycling has been around for a very long time. Scavengers who would rummage through the garbage heap then operated at sub-par standards, and people associated with recycling were viewed as paupers and delinquents.

Years ago, some people would ask to exchange used bowls and buckets for something or the other. That was the informal practice. Formal recycling in Nigeria only began about a decade ago in 2013 when Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) bottles were made popular.

Today, there is accessible information on the industry and the various materials that can be recycled. In the past, it was only metals. Many of the informal recyclers were only interested in metals. Now, people recycle plastic, tyres, batteries, and more recently, polystyrene. Before this, society ignored certain plastics that were difficult to recycle and allowed them to remain in the environment. Technology is growing to address those types of plastics like polystyrene or Styrofoam. These are soft packaging materials used in protecting packaged electronics.
