Most importantly, “preventing old cut- ting dies from ending up in a landfill will help all of us,” Mansour summarizes. “Tons of the material were recycled in one trip, versus disposing it in a dumpster week in, week out, through the year,” Pirkle points out. “The savings can be potentially sig- nificant, just in indirect costs alone. Dieboard wood is hard. It stays in the ground for years and take a very long time to decompose.” Pirkle says the manufacturing operations of a typical pa- perboard converter or containerboard plant can generate thousands of tons of pre-consumer, high-grade recyclable corrugated, fiberboard, production trim waste and paper- board waste annually. If recycled, this waste can generate significant savings and perhaps revenues for a company. “There are several challenges and shortcomings in dealing with recycling, labor and waste transportation,” he continues. “Dieboards are recyclable materials. Landfilling them doesn’t meet anyone’s environmental goals or boost revenue. Repurposing the boards instead provides a sig- nificant value-added contribution to sustainability.” Mid America Paper Recycling, a fourth-generation lead- er in the recycling industry, provides environmental solu- tions for partners ranging from small businesses to large corporations. Its program features a benchmarking waste audit, consultation services, documentation, quantification and presentation. Visit .
