Closed Loop Solution

We make millions of products from the materials we gather. The cardboard we collect provides the raw materials for our paper making operations, which is then turned into new packaging products.

Using our own transport fleets, we're perpetually devoted to closing the loop on recycling. This means that recycled cardboard supplied at one end of the Supply Cycle is collected and recycled at the other - achieving true closed loop recycling, all possible within 14 days.
