The Recycling business unit, together with its collaboration with Planet Care Waste Management procures approximately 200,000 tons of recyclable material per annum. The recyclable material is sourced from a national network of independent agents, SMME’s and empowerment driven initiatives. A portion is also sourced from the 4 Planet Care Waste Management’s sites via numerous loose collections and on-site waste management programmes, from commercial clients, offices, buy-back centres, etc.
These programmes not only promote recycling awareness but help minimise waste to landfill and creates jobs.
The vast majority of recovered paper material is consumed as a raw material in the manufacturing process at our Enstra Paper Mill in Springs to produce 100% recycled based containerboard.
