Recycling in Colombia: Plastics Recycling Database


Colombia’s Plastics Recycling Database 2016-2017 gathers contact information for all the stakeholders involved in the recycling chain for plastics in Colombia, including: everyday collectors, commonly known as waste pickers, material recovery facilities, reprocessors, manufacturers, converters and retailers. This tool provides buyers and sellers with contact information to bridge the gap between supply and demand which helps to avoid plastic from ending up as trash in landfills or in the oceans and rivers. Colombia’s Plastics Recycling Database 2016-2017 also includes information related to imports and exports of plastic waste as well as a guide that enables an easier identification of plastic resins and their uses. Colombia’s Plastics Recycling Database was published for the first time in 1994. Since then it has been updated eight times.
