Sonoco Recycling opens
facility in North Charleston
Sonoco has relocated its Charleston, South Carolina,
recycling operation to a new, state-of-the-art materials recycling facility
1.5 miles away at 2025 Tellico Road in North Charleston.
“Our new North Charleston facility is larger—a nearly
30,000 square foot building on a 5-acre site—and much more efficient
than our former location,” said Myles Cohen, vice president and general
manager of Sonoco Recycling, the Sonoco business unit formerly known
as Paper Stock Dealers.
Sonoco Recycling’s new Charleston facility accepts
and processes most corrugated boxes and other grades of paper materials,
metals and plastics, and will have an annual recycling capability of
approximately one-quarter of a billion pounds f recyclable materials.
The facility accepts curbside material delivered by the public and offers
flatbed pick up of baled material, van service for loose, palletized
or baled material and roll-off service for 30- and 40-yard open and closed
Sonoco, which processes and uses many of these recycled
materials to produce recycled paperboard at its South Carolina paper
mills, then uses that paperboard to produce new consumer and industrial
packaging, making Sonoco one of the few cradle-to-cradle suppliers of
packaging in the industry.
