Papertrade Recycling commenced operations initially collecting many grades of paper in small quantities for export to Asia. The volume of paper collected and processed has now grown to more than 110,000 tonnes per annum of post consumer and more than 14,000 tonnes per annum of industry scrap.

Papertrade Recycling has developed a business that provides value and solutions to many collectors, processors and manufacturers throughout Australia. Facilities have been established in New South Wales and Queensland. The business has also expanded where it now has regular trading dealings with suppliers and producers in New Zealand and the USA.

Papertrade Recycling is now handling large volumes of waste paper per month and providing an alternative outlet for many smaller processors and collectors who are unable to meet the demands of local recyclers, and ensuring that the paper are not sent to landfill.

Papertrade Recycling has also developed sorting, baling and processing activities into many of it’s sites, which in turn assist in converting waste products into a raw material of value to manufacturers of packaging, pipes, containers and sheet products.

Polytrade Recycling is committed to achieving the goal of being a "PROVIDER OF COMPLETE RECYCLING SOLUTIONS" by ensuring that every effort is made to find a market and user for paper waste rather than it being disposed of as landfill.
