Kruger Products is not a new comer to sound environmental practices.
Our first reforestation program was instituted in 1948, and we implemented some of the industries
first recycling programs. In the 1970’s, innovations such as wastewater treatment at our mills
and the use of recycled fiber in our tissue products were implemented to help protect the natural
environment. This commitment is further evident throughout all of our operations where Kruger
meets or exceeds all government environmental standards.
We achieve source reduction through continuous improvements in our manufacturing and distribution process:
Reduce excess weight and packaging of our products resulting in smaller waste streams.
Manufacture larger case pack sizes.
Ensure the material used in products and packaging lends itself to easy disposal or reuse.
Reuse and Recover
In our manufacturing process,
we reuse the water taken away from the source supply,
greatly reducing the demands for this resource.
We also recapture the fiber and energy inherent in the effluent for reuse in the papermaking process.
We currently own and operate one of Canada’s largest recycling facilities for the sanitary tissue industry.
Our recycling facilities allow us to recycle 130,000 tonnes of waste material,
making Kruger Products a leading recycler in the Canadian sanitary tissue industry.
Since 1989, Kruger Products has produced 158 million cases of recycled finished products.
Our shipping containers, cartons, and product cores are all recyclable and,
in most cases are made from 100% recycled material.
