Changes in life style and a growing population has lead to a dramatic increase in plastic waste across Uganda. It is estimated that over 108 tons of plastic waste are generated in Uganda every day, yet the recycling capacity is less than half that amount.
Savco Millers aims to significantly reduce the environmental impact of plastic waste by collecting, recycling and selling plastic waste.
Savco Millers purchases plastic waste from collectors at a premium priced recycles it into new products like grow bags for trees, construction sheets and waste collection bags. Their products are then sold back to the local community at affordable prices.
