Recycling Report 2015 – Praxis Packaging

Praxis was able to recycle nearly 2,000,000 lbs of corrugate and office paper in 2015. Praxis has made a conscious effort to value recycling and sustainability. Praxis’s recycling efforts have lead to an increase in materials recycled every year – an increase of 200,000 lbs since 2012.

The most important thing for recycling paper is that there is NO contamination in the recycling bin. This means that bottles and cans need to be empty of all liquids. Other food containers like yogurt tubs and pasta sauce jars should be rinsed.

Any food, soda, beer, etc. that gets on the paper renders it unrecyclable and can ruin and entire bale.

shredded paper:

While crumpled and slightly altered paper is recyclable, shredded paper is not. The paper fibers have been shortened too much and the small shreds can jam machinery and contaminate bales of other materials.

Shredded paper is a great packing material especially for fragile items. Beyond that, it’s fabulous for compost especially worm bins.
