Paper Shipping Sack Recycling
Paper industrial shipping sacks, often called multiwall sacks, provide efficient and economical packaging of a wide range of food, agricultural, construction, industrial and consumer products. And, because they are made almost entirely of paper, they often can be recycled after they are emptied. Learn from an industry association representative how recycling clean, unlined food paper shipping sacks can help reduce the amount of waste requiring landfill disposal and provides an exceptionally good source of fiber for the manufacturing of new cardboard boxes and other paper packaging products, as well as other paper products.
