the way
a circular economy

Customers are increasingly prioritising environmentally friendly packaging in their purchasing decisions. By choosing a commonly recycled product, it doesn’t go to a landfill and end up as waste. These products are instead remade into new products and “live again” in a circular economy model which is restorative by intention and design.

This model of production and consumption involves the sharing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling of existing materials and products, to extend their life cycle for as long as possible. It also helps customers achieve their sustainability goals and reduce their environmental impact.


How does Mpact Corrugated fit in?

Mpact is leading the way in the circular economy within the manufacturing industry in South Africa. Through our connection to Mpact Recycling and Mpact Paper, along with our membership with FibreCircle (a Producer Responsibility Organisation), we are committed to creating viable solutions for collection and designing for recyclability.

This is
how the

First the cardboard is used, then after use it’s separated into the recyclables bin. Once collected, the cardboard makes its way to any of Mpact’s 15 recycling branches where it is baled. The branch then delivers the baled cardboard to the various Mpact paper mills located in Springs, Felixton and eMkhondo, where it is then made into new paper.

This paper is sent to ten Mpact Corrugated sites and made into new corrugated boxes. The packaged boxes are then sold to manufacturers who package the goods for wholesalers or retailers. The boxes are then unpacked by the retailers and get collected for recycling. And so the cycle continues.

Recycling benefits the environment, communities, the economy and the world.

Let us help you recycle your used cardboard boxes.

Our links with Mpact Recycling means that we can connect you with the right people to ensure that no recyclables go to waste and we keep the circular economy in motion.
