Pulp Action

Central Regional TAFE have recently partnered with ToxFree to provide waste paper recycling facilities on campus. The "Pulp Action" recycling initiative has been launched to capture waste paper, cardboard, magazines, glossy pamphlets etc, that were generally entering waste and into landfill. The waste paper products captured by the 80 boxes located throughout the campus, will go into ToxFree's waste paper recycling facilities to be reused for a number of different renewed/recycled products. Central Regional TAFE are further enhancing this initiative by offering that staff and students bring in their personal waste paper and cardboard from home and utilise the recycling facilities.
