Paper & Cardboard

Paper and cardboard are one of the mostly commonly recycled products in Australian workplaces. Recycling collections or drop-off services are readily available in many areas, provided by councils or commercial recyclers. Clean mixed paper and cardboard is recycled into a variety of paper products. Lower grade products can be recycled or composted as organic waste. It is important to purchase paper products with recycled content in order to close the loop and support the recycled paper market.

Cardboard - Cartons

Cardboard is easily and effectively recycled which can prevent the release of methane from cardboard in landfill, saves trees and reduces water and energy use.
