Hillside Printing strives to act as sustainably as possible. We recycle all waste including, aluminum printing plates, plastics, paper, toner cartridges, pallets, etc. Inks are water based, paper recycled where possible, and no chemicals of any sort are put into our storm water or sewers.
In 2010 through our recycling program, we recovered 60.4 tonnes of material, reducing landfill by 234.9 cubic yards, saving 278,010 kWh energy and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 217.4 Te CO2e. We saved 969 mature trees, 163.5 barrels of petroleum and 1,517,990 litres of water. In addition we recycle heat given off from our machinery to reduce our energy consumption.
We live in Victoria and all want it to be the best place on the planet to live so we are very aware of leaving a small footprint!
