Sonoco Recycling Inc., a subsidiary of Sonoco, Hartsville, S.C., USA, has been awarded a 10-year contract to operate the Onslow County, N.C., materials recovery facility (MRF). The company plans to invest $1 million in facility upgrades.

We are very excited to work with the County," said Jim Brown, VP, Sonoco Recycling. "Residents of Coastal North Carolina will now have access to expanded, single-stream, or commingled, recycling, increasing the types of materials they are able to recycle. We also plan to build an education center at the County's MRF, developing recycling education efforts in and around Onslow County through partnerships with local schools and public education programs at the facility."

With locations worldwide, Sonoco Recycling annually collects more than 3 million tons of old corrugated containers, various grades of paper, metals, and plastics. In addition, the company has experts who provide secure, reliable, and innovative recycling solutions to residential and commercial customers.

Currently, Sonoco Recycling operates six MRFs and serves more than 125 communities in which curbside-collected residential and commercial materials are processed. The company also provides recycling programs that identify waste reduction opportunities for reducing operating expenses at many of the largest consumer product companies in the U.S.
