We are very excited to share photos of the Texas Recycling plant and a quote from President and Co-owner Joel Litman, as appeared in Wall Street Journal (18 November 2020), All Those Used Delivery Boxes Are a Hot Commodity by Bob Tita

Excerpt from the artcle:

Junk mail and discarded delivery boxes have turned into a hot commodity as the paper industry uses them as a substitute for recycled office paper, which became scarce as people work from home.

That is a sharp turnaround from two years ago, when the market for recycled catalogs, boxes and newspapers collapsed after China toughened its standards for waste paper imports.

Now, U.S. paper and cardboard mills are figuring out how to turn that trash into new toilet paper, coffee cups, paper towels and cardboard boxes. And they have more material to work with as people order more food and packages to their homes during the coronavirus.

Joel Litman quoted:

Meantime, American companies are searching for more scrap paper. Dallas-based Texas Recycling Inc., which collects paper from commercial and industrial users and sells it to paper mills, is looking for more cardboard to cover the 40% drop this year in its shredding business for office paper.

“The demand for corrugated is going to pick up,” said co-owner Joel Litman. “More mills are coming on line.”
