Paper – 100% recyclable
Neopak’s Recycling division is focused on the recycling of used paper and paper products. This collected material is used as key input for the manufacturing of the recycled paper that is produced at our Rosslyn manufacturing plant.
Core to our Neopak DNA is being a responsible stewards of the environment and manufacturing paper that is made from 100% recycled fibres enables us to make a real and significant impact on reducing waste that would otherwise have ended up in been sent to landfill. To put this in perspective, if you look at a “typical brown box” that weighs 250 grams, Neopak would be recycling around 500 million of these boxes on an annual basis.
We believe that our responsibility towards sustainability does not only extend to waste management but also to uplift and develop communities. It is for this reason that our sourcing model enables us to source recyclable fibre via two main channels across South Africa. Baled waste is sent directly to our manufacturing facility in Rosslyn and loose waste is sourced via our Recycling unit in Amalgam.

Recycling made easy
Our approach to recycling is to ensure that it is easy but more importantly also sustainable and economically viable for your business.
We think differently about paper. We don’t see it as waste but rather as the many other products that it can become: corrugated boxes, paper files, paper cores or ceiling board. The possibilities are endless.
Our recycling centre in Amalgam, Johannesburg, offers several services including:
- Assessment and purchasing of recyclable materials
- Once-off or regular collection services
- Confidential shredding including the provision of a certificate of destruction
We procure several recyclable items including:
- Brown used corrugated boxes
- White office waste paper
- Old newspapers
- PET cold drink and water bottles
- Low density polyethylene (LDPE) e.g. bags, shrouds, sheets, etc.
High density polyethylene (HDPE) e.g. plastic milk bottles, juice bottles, etc.
