How is Paper Recycled? Learn About the Recycling Process at Pratt Industries

  • Pratt Industries

Learn more about recycling and where the material goes when it leaves your curbside. Take a tour of Pratt Industries Material Recovery Facility in Conyers, GA. Journey along as we take you through our recycling process. Watch as the recovered material arrives via trailers and is sorted by material type (plastic, aluminum, paper). The recovered mixed paper is then taken to our paper mill where it's cleaned, repulped and converted into new 100% recycled paper that's used in Pratt's 100% recycled boxes!

Pratt Recycling is a part of Pratt Industries, the 5th largest corrugated packaging company in the USA and the world’s largest, privately-held producer of 100% recycled containerboard. Pratt Recycling Division is a full service recycler with 19 recycling facilities. Pratt utilizes the paper products collected in the production of its 100% recycled content paper and packaging solutions. Our mission is to create sustainable recycling solutions for our customers that maximize waste diversion, create cost savings and revenue stream for valuable recyclables previously landfilled, all the while minimizing the environmental impact by preserving natural resources for future generations.

Every year Pratt diverts 3 million tons of paper, other recyclable materials and waste-to-clean energy materials from the landfill. Some items that cannot be recycled are used as fuel for Pratt’s clean energy plant which powers the paper-making process.
