Sustainability

South Coast Paper is committed to undertaking practices that preserve our natural resources.  We employ environmentally, socially and economically sustainable practices to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations.  This is accomplished by practicing and promoting a resource and conservation stewardship ethic.  Our production facility has implemented and continues to achieve sustainability, recycling and biodegradable objectives through the following initiatives:

  • All clean white trim and reject sheets are recovered and sent directly back to paper mills.
  • All colored paper trim and reject sheets are sorted and sent back to mills producing colors.
  • All corrugate packaging waste is sorted, baled and sent to a recycling center.
  • All core plugs are recycled directly back to paper mills.
  • Reducing South Coast Paper’s solid waste going to landfills. Currently, waste is down over 60% from two years ago.
  • All brown cores are stripped of white paper, bundled together, and sent to a recycle center.
  • All used hydraulic oil is collected and sent to a recycling center.
  • South Coast Paper’s sustainability policy promotes the principles of sustainable development, recycling and biodegradability.  We are steadfast in our goal to continually maximize the amount of reclaimed waste material from our production processes and to maintain the degradability of our paper products to ensure that non-recycled components are recoverable, bio-degradable and/or compostable.
