Polypropylene Recycling #5
Polypropylene (“PP”) is a highly recyclable and sought after material in Aotearoa NZ with strong value and a corresponding end market. Many manufacturers are wanting to secure more NZ recycled polypropylene (“rPP”) rather than having to import it. Today, we still have PP being sold offshore in mixed bales as well as PP being sent to landfill.
National Working Group
Plastics NZ is facilitating a national working group to help create circular pathways for PP in NZ to help low emissions circular economy.
There are 10 councils around NZ that aren’t yet collecting PP. View Map
Today, in Aotearoa we have 84% of councils collecting PP, and this represents ~95% of our overall population.
