  • Sonoco (NYSE:SON) plans to expand post-consumer recovery and recycling opportunities for paper cups in bales of mixed paper to be used as raw material at its Hartsville paperboard mill to produce new paperboard.
  • The collaboration enables flexibility to recycle and process fiber-based packaging through conventional paper mill pulping systems.
  • All of Sonoco’s U.S. paper mills have previously validated that they can accept rigid paper cans in bales of mixed paper coming from residential Material Recovery Facilities.
  • Additional testing is underway with the aim of expanding cup recycling to all Sonoco mills that utilize residential mixed paper.
