Visy offers collection and sorting services for:

  • Paper and cardboard
    Visy provides recycling services to offices, commercial premises, schools, industrial and manufacturing organisations, and any other location that generates paper and cardboard for recycling.
  • Locked recycling
    Designed for the recycling of sensitive documents, this service is suited to businesses that need to ensure such documents are appropriately handled. 
  • Co-mingled recycling
    Glass bottles and jars, plastic containers, aluminium and steel cans can all be placed in a separate recycling bin to paper and cardboard for collection and sorting. This service is ideal for many of our customers' businesses, particularly those in hospitality who generate a great deal of co-mingled materials but little paper.
