Corrugated recycling helps to 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 wastes 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.

Corrugated is an extremely durable, versatile, economical and lightweight material used for custom-manufactured shipping containers, packaging and point-of-purchase displays, in addition to numerous non-traditional applications ranging from pallets to children’s toys to furniture.
