Rock-Tenn Implements Recovered Fiber Grade Standards

Rock-Tenn has implemented recovered fiber grade specification standards through its mill supply system.

The Norcross, Ga.-based paper recycler and producer said in a press release that the move was part of its fiber quality initiative.

 “By formalizing our recovered fiber standards, we are able to better communicate to our suppliers and the market which materials we will accept at each of our mills. This will help us to streamline our receiving practices while monitoring the quality of our fiber supply,” said Linda Leone, vice president of fiber mill supply.

The recovered fiber mill specification sheets are located by facility here on the company’s website.
