The contents of your recycling bin are processed by VISY at its material recovery facility. Accepted items are sorted into streams of paper, plastic, glass, steel and aluminium. Contaminated items (items that shouldn’t be in the recycling bin) are manually removed and sent to landfill.
Visy is a packaging company that uses accepted items to create new packaging items made from recycled materials, such as cardboard boxes, water bottles, glass bottles and jars, beverage cans and pet food tins.
