Paper to Pulp

What happens to your paperboard recycling? Once collected, it’s shipped to a mill where it is broken down into fibers, cleaned, screened, thickened, brightened and dried – a process known as pulping. Pulp is pressed to form paperboard, dried again and prepped for final usage. Once the recycled paperboard is ready, it will be sent to a converting facility where it is transformed into a new box, carton or other consumer or industrial product. So keep on recycling that paperboard!
