The prevalence of individuals and companies who collect and dispose of drums with fraudulent AVCASA approval certificates necessitated a total rework of our system in dealing with plastic drum collectors and recyclers. Attached is the latest list of AVCASA approved plastic container recyclers and collectors; every single one was contacted personally to verify their operations and compliance. The list will be displayed within a day or two on the CLSA and AVCASA websites along with the current supporting documents under the Waste Management heading. AVCASA also issued an AVCASA Certificate of Approval (see attached example of the certificate for Chopchop Recycling) that has a limited validity and is renewable every year.
