Polypropylene (PPE) packaging, also known as flexible intermediate bulk container (FIBC) bags, refers to bulk fertiliser bags and packaging which are predominantly used for industrial or agricultural purposes.
Made from flexible fabric, they are designed for storing and transporting dry, flowable products, such as sand, fertiliser, and granules of plastic.
Millions of tonnes of these bags are produced each year, with many going to landfill, rather than being recycled, or causing environmental damage by polluting fields, waterways and roads.
Why should you recycle PPE?
Not only can PPE packaging can be collected, recycled and reused, it can also be processed and turned into brand new products, such as plastic pipes and outdoor furniture. More importantly, by using proper disposal methods and recycling PPE bags, a business can significantly reduce operating costs and improve environmental performance.
