The paper industry is a leading recycler, and with local collecting systems improving, it is anticipated that it will increase its recycling rates further. It is estimated that, with improved recovery, reduction in landfill can be achieved. In fact, paper is recycled more than any other household item.
–ABS Waste Management and Transport Use, 2009
Australian Paper’s construction of their $90 million waste paper recycling plant at the Maryvale Mill in Victoria’s LaTrobe Valley will generate 50,000 tonnes of premium recycled pulp each year, diverting up to 80,000 tonnes of waste paper from Australian landfills. – Australian Paper, 2012
