RockTenn closes recycling plant

RockTenn, a paper and packaging manufacturer, plans to close one of its St. Louis facilities.

The recycling facility, located at 5505 Natural Bridge Avenue in St. Louis, Missouri, is one of four RockTenn facilities located within the St. Louis region.

RockTenn, which purchased Smurfit-Stone Container Corp. for $3.5 billion in May 2011, plans to close the facility December 6, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification filed with the state of Missouri.

The shutdown will cause the layoff of 50 employees.
