More than 4000 tonnes of paper and cardboard a month are saved from the tip thanks to ethical recycling company One Paper.

The Laverton North business aims to reduce the environmental impact of paper processing.

Director Stephen Pighin said One Paper performs an integral role in the west.

“Today we process over 4000 tonnes of recycling product per month, we couldn’t have done it in the place we were previously in,” Mr Pighin said. “The best thing about being in Laverton North is the close proximity and easy access to the roads heading south east, south west, north and the city precinct.”

One Paper has entered into this year’s Wyndham Business Awards in the logistics category.

Mr Pighin said winning an award would give recognition to One Paper’s staff that “hard work pays off”.

Star Weekly is a media partner of the Wyndham Business Awards.
