Visy has been at the forefront of the recycling industry in Australia and New Zealand for many years.....
...and today we're proud to say we process recyclables for millions of households, schools and businesses across Australia and New Zealand.
Visy has worked in partnership with local councils in Australia and New Zealand for many years and together we are committed to education programs that target the reduction of waste ending up in landfill.
Free drop off services are also available to residents to encourage recycling within their communities.
Watch the video below produced by Visy together with Melton City Council to obtain some valuable tips on recycling right at home.
Recycle right. Recover all paper, cardboard, plastic bottles and containers, glass bottles and jars, aluminum cans and foil and steel tins.
Do not put recyclables in plastic bags. Use a tub or basket to carry these items to your recycling bin.
Donate your old clothes and shoes. These items do not belong in the recycling bin and if they can’t be donated they belong in the waste bin.
Leave lids and labels on plastic bottles. The recycling process will remove these.
Garden waste belongs in your green waste bin. Do not put lawn clippings or branches in the recycling bin.
Conserve water by not rinsing. Just empty any food or liquid before you put items in the recycling bin.
Take care not to put waste in your recycling bin. Make a conscious effort to separate your recyclables and waste and place them in the correct bins.
Compost food scraps. These can be used on your garden as fertiliser.
Have local council or private recyclers take your whitegoods (fridges, washing machine, dryers etc).
Electronic waste. Enlist the services of electronic retailers who have recycling bins for discarded appliances (mobile phones, batteries etc).
