At Australian Paper we are committed to locally made, recycled paper production with our investment in building a $90 million waste paper recycling plant at our Maryvale; the only one of its type in Australia. Reflex is proudly made at the Maryvale Mill in Victoria.
Incorporating the very latest in technology, the new waste paper recycling plant will divert up to 80,000 tonnes of waste paper from landfill each year; that’s equivalent to 16 billion sheets of A4 copy paper. It will also see Australian Paper triple the usage of quality recycled, fibre in our office, printing, publishing, envelope and stationery papers ranging from 10% to 100% recycled content.
The state-of-the-art de-inking plant will be fully integrated into our operations to ensure that the Maryvale Mill continues to produce premium, bright white papers, consistently. Not only will this investment cement our commitment to local recycled paper production, as the only premium paper recycling facility of its kind in Australia, it will also boost regional jobs and contribute to Australia’s economy both during the construction phase and ongoing.
