A Paragon of virtue
In the UK, landfill is still the number one destination for both household garbage and industrial packaging waste. Now Paragon, one of the UK’s major label and packaging converters, has started offering customers and non-customers a recycling service aimed at reprocessing waste liner and other packaging waste into tissue paper and candy wrappers.
According to Paragon, used liner alone accounts for some 30,000 tonnes (33,000 tons) of landfill every year. The new service will be charged at £70 ($100) per tonne, and Paragon hopes to attract environmentally minded brand owners to use its recycling facility.
