We are all about paper recycling
About the association
The Paper Recycling Association of South Africa – PRASA – represents processors and manufacturers of recycled paper fibre.
PRASA promotes a culture of recycling by driving education and awareness programmes within schools, engaging with business and government. Separation at source is key to ensuring the recovery of good quality paper fibre.
PRASA operates under the Paper Manufacturers Association of South Africa.
“Paper and paper packaging is not waste but a valuable commodity. For manufacturers, recycled paper is an alternative fibre, with some 65% of recovered paper being used as raw material for the production of corrugated boxes and board, newspapers, tissue products, kitchen and industrial paper toweling, cereal boxes, soap cartons and molded paper products like egg boxes.” Ursula Henneberry, PRASA operations director
