Recycled plastic pellets such as these will be incorporated into the bitumen mix traditionally used for the top layers of roads.

Work is expected to start on Africa's first eco-friendly road, incorporating plastic waste, at Jeffreys Bay on 21 July.
Kouga Infrastructure and Engineering Portfolio Councillor Freddy Campher said work would start on the section of Woltemade Street between Jeffreys and St Francis Streets. 
"All health and safety regulations have been put in place. The stormwater system will be installed next, after which work will start on the sidewalks and curbing, " he said.
He said the road would have to be closed once the excavation of the road started. The date is yet to confirmed.
"We apologise sincerely to those businesses and motorists who will be affected by the work along Woltemade Street.
" Alternative parking will be available at Neptune's Terrace and the Ethios supermarket."
He said once the upgrade of Woltemade Street had been completed, the contractor would move on to Koraal Street. 
"We will be upgrading a total stretch of 1,7 kilometers, more than initially planned," he said. 
The upgrade is a joint project by the municipality, MacRebur SA, SP Excel and Scribante Construction.
