In Nigeria, recycling of plastic waste is one area anybody can easily venture into. The raw materials are easily found everywhere. Processing companies are looking for more suppliers to meet their needs.
Plastic waste that can be recycled includes PET bottles, Nylon bags, sachet-water nylon, PET-bottle caps, plastic containers, Nylon bags, etc.
Plastic recycling business is so vast that fortunately or unfortunately as the case may be, only few people are doing it.
Value-Chain in Plastic Recycling Business

Pelletizing – Stage 4
From the value chain above you can enter into the business of plastic recycling in any stage depending on your financial capacity.
Plastic Waste collection/ Sorting/Storage – Stage 1
This stage is the simplest of the value chain. It is mostly dominated by our brothers from the North with high/tight trading network. However you can get your supply from other source e,g manufacturing companies waste, schools, hotels, supermarkets, etc.
Supplier/Collection/Sorting – scale – storage – sell

Baling – stage 2
One thing about plastic recycling business is that the more you move down the value chain, the more money you make. You will make more money if you bale/sell than selling directly. Plastic recycling companies pay higher per kilo for baled products.

Note: Before Baling, plastic waste should be cleaned and sorted.
