We may be square, but we’ve been thinking circular for years.

More corrugated packaging is recovered for recycling than any other packaging material 1 . In 2016, the recovery rate for old corrugated containers (OCC) was 93 percent, up from 54 percent in 1993. Maybe that’s because 96 percent of Americans have access to community curbside or drop-off corrugated recycling programs 2 . And nearly all OCC is used to make new paper products. www.corrugated.org
