Recycling

A record-high 63.4 percent of the paper consumed in the U.S. was recovered for recycling in 2009. This amount averaged 325 pounds for each man, woman, and child in the U.S. It is great news for the industry and the environment, and exceeds the industry’s 60 percent recovery goal three years ahead of schedule.

  • Since its launch Wisconsin Green has recovered 100 percent of its corrugated scrap through recycling and reuse. This year Wisconsin Green installed an automated scrap system that recovers scrap at each machine and directs it to a centralized cyclone where it is shredded and unitized for recycling.

  • Wisconsin Green only uses water-based (Flexo) inks in its printing process.

  • Wisconsin Green is able to provide a 100 percent recycled OCC ECT sheet. Cost-effective and sustainable alternatives to foam are also available, like Korrvu.


In addition to the initiatives above, Wisconsin Green has always does its best to be a responsible steward by installing high-efficiency parabolic reflective fluorescent lighting in both office and plant, recycling all fluorescent tubes, office waste, oil, and solvents, and remixing unused ink into black for jobs requiring only a class stamp or part number.

Renewable Resource

More trees are growing in the nation's forests than at any time since the early 1900's. In 1900, forest growth rates were a small fraction of harvest. Today, annual forest growth exceeds harvest by 33 percent. Net annual growth has increased 55 percent since 1952, and growth per acre has increased 62 percent. Nationally, standing timber volume per acre in US forests is 33 percent greater than in 1952. In national forests, annual growth now exceeds harvest by more than 100 percent.
