PAPER & CARDBOARD RECYCLING

Did you know?

Recycling just one tonne of paper saves 13 trees and 26,500 litres of water, not to mention energy. Paper can be recycled up to seven times. If it ends up in landfills, it produces methane whilst breaking down; a greenhouse gas that is a problem for global warming. Manufacturing recycled paper can use up to 90% less water and 50% less energy than making it from trees.

 

Australia has one of the highest rates of paper recycling in the world and Speedie Waste & Recycle is proud to be part of this success.

We launched our Speedie Waste Recycling division over 30 years ago and throughout this time we have seen the importance and value in recycling for a sustainable future, Ensuring Tomorrow.
