Mid America Paper Recycling (MAPR) is launching an initiative focused on tracking and increasing the value of the recycling waste streams generated by large commercial printers and paperboard converters, according to the company.  According to Mid America executives, the manufacturing operations of a typical paper or containerboard plant can generate thousands of tons of pre-consumer, high-grade recyclable paper, production trim waste and paperboard waste annually, which in turn, can generate significant revenues for the company.

“The newspaper industry is one example that ships numerous tons of product each year,” said Paul Pirkle, president of Illinois-based Mid America Paper Recycling. “We work closely with these operators and all companies that recycle waste paper to create a continuous improvement process that helps them identify where waste is generated, establish key collection procedures, and set objectives that will continually improve their waste stream’s revenue contribution to the business.”
