To help businesses, government departments, schools and households make the switch to Australian recycled paper, Planet Ark has teamed up with Australian Paper to form the Make it Australian Recycled campaign.
The Make It Australian Recycled campaign aims to:
- show the importance of closing the paper recycling loop by buying it back
- increase the use of locally made, high-recycled content paper (50% or more)
- encourage recycling of office paper
- reduce the amount of waste paper going to Australian landfill
The major catalyst for our partnership was Australian Paper's new de-inking facility at the Maryvale Mill in Victoria. The facility has the ability to greatly increase the production of recycled paper and has the capacity to divert 80,000 tonnes of waste paper from landfill or overseas export each year. Read more.
