A Cleaner, Greener End Product

Through its ongoing commitment and attention to all aspects of corrugated production and renewal, the corrugated industry continues striving to produce the cleanest, greenest packaging material on earth. Meanwhile, ongoing research promises to develop even greater advances every day, helping maintain corrugated's leadership in preserving the earth's natural resources for future generations

The corrugated industry has been providing cost-efficient fiber-based packaging for over 100 years, always managing our businesses according to sustainable values. Because of our relationship to natural resources, we have long understood the connections between our economic performance, environmental stewardship and the positive impact of our products in people’s everyday lives. We see sustainability as an interconnected, reinforcing dynamic for managing a successful enterprise: wise environmental stewardship, stable financial performance and commitment to sustainability make our industry financially sound and aligned with the broader values of society and the needs of sustainable operations, leading us to develop creative packaging to meet those needs.

Why Recycle?

earth911-web-logo
Recycling corrugated helps decrease solid waste disposal in landfills. It also provides fiber that is reused to make new corrugated, so we can use less new, raw material. Recycling corrugated even earns revenue for the end-user, because that recovered material (called "OCC," for "old corrugated containers") is valuable to paper mills and manufacturers of new corrugated.

About Corrugated

Corrugated has been recycled for decades, mostly by commercial users such as your neighborhood grocery store. As a matter of fact, 78.3% of all corrugated was recovered for recycling in 2007.

Families across America have joined in the effort as community recycling programs grew and matured.

The corrugated industry wants to recover its product to make more boxes, which almost always include substantial recycled content, and end users derive revenues from the sale of OCC (old corrugated containers).

Growing demand for and market value of OCC gives communities a good economic reason to recycle corrugated.
