VISY RECYCLING - Leaders in recycling
Visy Recycling is Australia's leading waste paper recycler. Each year Visy Recycling collects and recycles more than 650,000 tonnes of waste paper and cardboard. That amount of paper is equivalent to more than 8.5 million trees.
The waste paper and cardboard Visy Recycling collects is reprocessed into recycled packaging paper which is then used by another Visy company, Visy Board, to make 100% recycled corrugated cardboard boxes.
As one of three operating divisions of the Visy Industries group, Visy Recycling is part of a company that is part of Australian history. From humble beginnings nearly 50 years ago, Visy Industries started making corrugated cardboard boxes with only basic equipment, a few employees and a strong will to succeed.
Today Visy Industries is Australia's largest manufacturer of corrugated cardboard boxes made from 100% recycled paper. It is a privately owned Melbourne based international company which employs more than 4,5000 people worldwide.
Visy Recycling has recently invested more than $10 million to establish a kerbside recycling operation and a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) at Laverton Victoria.
Visy is committed to recycling and will continue to reinvest to ensure the sustainability of the recycling industry in Australia.
