Plastic imports consist primarily of polyethylene, hard density polyethylene, and resins. Local manufacturers use these products to manufacture plastic garbage bags, plastic cups, and containers for the food processing industry.
The Ivoirian plastics industry needs new technology to adapt to the policy of manufacturing bio-degradable and recyclable products. The government offers tax incentives for companies entering light manufacturing, which includes the recycling industry.
