​Sappi and recycling

Imagine a world without waste. You can make it happen.

Sappi ReFibre is Sappi Southern Africa’s secondary fibre division and is responsible for the recycling of used paper and paper products. Testament to our commitment to running a sustainable business, we develop innovative models to facilitate the recycling of paper and the minimisation of waste.

Paper is truly a sustainable product — made from renewable resources, it is reusable, recyclable and biodegradable.

Sappi ReFibre has developed a business model that enables us to recycle large volumes of paper that also benefit businesses and communities as part of the process.
‘Reduce, reuse and recycle’ is a phrase that has become a sustainability mantra all over the world.
Few people routinely recycle partly because of the effort involved and partly because they don’t know how to recycle.
Apart from recycling at home, you can easily start a paper recycling project in your office, community, church, club or school.

The principles of responsible corporate citizenship underpin our business decisions, strategies and processes and are incorporated into our everyday operations.
