Adding value after use

1 Retailers collect and sell used corrugated packaging to the paper mills for recycling.

2 Good quality separate collection and sorting systems in EU countries (where available) ensure a secure supply of high quality raw material for the paper mills.

3 This, in turn, ensures high quality recycled paper for corrugated manufacturers.

4 Corrugated board is produced and traded in Europe. It’s a local business, creating value for both the economy and society. FEFCO members’ companies operate 672 corrugated plants, employing around 90 000 people and producing 43,9  billion m2 of corrugated board each year (2016 figures).
