Many years ago, Plastic Packaging used to do this recycling process in-house. Recycling was done purely for its own benefits and purpose.
Over the years, as the company grew, this process grew alongside and thus at least required bigger premises. Apart from Plastic Packaging's manufacturing in Namibia, a lot of other packaging and materials are also imported into Namibia. All these products are being gathered by companies like Rent-A-Drum
or being sold as scrap to NPR for recycling and environmental purposes.
The growing demand in this, required the birth of Namibia Polymer Recyclers.
