Waste paper

The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) announced that 65.7% of paper consumed in the United States was recycled in 2020, maintaining a recycling rate that has been consistently high for over a decade.

North Pacific Paper Company (NORPAC) announced the arrival of a new state-of-the-art drum pulper that will produce recycled packaging papers from waste material previously sent to China, helping to solve a major environmental challenge while supporting local jobs.

The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE UK) and Sonoco Europe have signed an agreement which provides a UK-wide recycling solution for paper containers with metal ends, through ACE UK’s Bring Bank collection scheme.
