Policy Issues

The 100% recycled paperboard industry is primarily concerned about public policies that would affect the amount of recovered paper available to our mills or the quality of that paper (e.g. contamination levels).

The Paper Recycling Coalition educates policy leaders, regulators, Members of Congress and their staffs, and others about the impact of various policies on the 100% recycled paperboard industry. We also work closely with the environmental community other industry organizations to advise them of our industry's interests and concerns.
