URM offers commercial and residential paper and cardboard recycling services across Australia. We provide sustainable solutions for councils, businesses and households.

Despite digital technology, Australians still rely on paper and cardboard. The average office worker throws out 50 kg of high-grade paper waste a year. That’s 10,000 sheets of A4! (Clean Up Australia)

Waste segregation and recycling is a breeze with URM’s bins and skips for every job. We’ll collect and dispose of your garbage in line with EPA (Environment Protection Authority) standards. Wherever possible we turn your recyclables into new products.

  • Newspapers
  • Cardboard gift boxes
  • Insulation
  • Packaging material
