Recycling is a great way to responsibly dispose of packaging and allow the valuable materials to live again.
It is also a convenient option, with 91% of the population having access to kerbside recycling1.
Choosing recyclable paper for retail packaging is part of contributing to a circular economy.
Australia’s recycling rate for all waste collected from households, businesses and construction and demolition is 55%2.
Recovery of paper and cardboard items specifically remains high, with over 78% of Australia's paper and cardboard waste being recycled3.
According to a recent analysis of Australia's municipal recycling infrastructure, existing collection and processing infrastructure is generally equipped to process current volumes of Australia’s recycled materials.
However, current infrastructure is not well equipped to process all forms of waste, particularly all forms of recyclable plastic and organic waste.
