SAICRA members operate drum and IBC reconditioning facilities across South Africa to clean, test and refurbish a wide variety of industrial packaging, which have local and imported products from around the world. SAICRA offers its members strong support in the form of assistance with legal and government updates, industry training and compliance audits to highlight areas of non-compliance with legislation, regulations and environmental responsible care.
Following specialised reconditioning, inspection and testing, these drums, containers and IBCs are ready to be filled and used once again in the South African market – having only required minimal energy consumption. Ultimately, after repeated cycles of use, the containers will reach the end of their working lives.
At this point SAICRA members once again provide an important service for protecting our environment, by ensuring the packaging’s are cleaned and ready for their materials to be recovered and reclaimed through recycling
