This pilot project was the first professional recycling facility in Tanzania and was established with a local partner and a Dutch recycling company.


The company still recycles plastic but has been purchased by another local entrepreneur.

Plastic Recycling Tanzania


In 2005, Envirotec BV from The Netherlands invested in a recycling plant in Dares salaam with a local partner.

A 50% grant for Pilot Projects was secured from the Dutch government. The project was sold to a third party in 2010.

The factory is still operational in Tanzania.
