Recycling paper and cardboard

Paper and cardboard can be dropped off at the Drysdale or Geelong Resource Recovery centres for recycling.

The more we recycle these items the less we need to use natural resources to manufacture new products. It also uses less energy and water in manufacturing.

What does recycled paper and newspaper become?

Newspapers can be recycled into egg cartons, game boards, new newspapers, gift boxes, animal bedding, insulation and packaging material.

Office paper is recycled into paper towels, tissue paper and toilet paper. Corrugated cardboard becomes new cardboard and cereal boxes.

Recycling shredded paper

Put shredded paper in a large paper bag, old envelope or cardboard box and drop off at the Drysdale or Geelong Resource Recovery centre.
