Learning & Discovery

We always begin with a holistic review of your company's or community’s existing waste management practices to ensure we design solutions based on where you are—and where you’d like to go.

First, we make a thorough assessment of your existing raw materials and processes to gather data and gain understanding.

Setting Goals

Together, we'll discuss your goals—everything from corporate sustainability and landfill free initiatives to new revenue streams.

Defining Opportunities

Armed with the insight gained in your assessment, we’ll help identify opportunities to streamline your processes or transform used materials into new revenue streams.

Crafting Custom Solutions

With your specific needs and goals as a guide, we custom build recycling solutions that drive efficiencies and sustainability and create enduring value.

Supporting & Measuring Success

We provide instantly-updated reports to help you track profits and savings.

And you'll receive responsive, friendly customer service to meet your changing needs and help ensure long-term success.

Recycling Education

Recycling Resources for Students and Communities

When you learn about recycling, you’re learning how to make the world better now and forever.

As part of our mission to change the way people, companies and communities think about recycling, we actively share our ever-expanding knowledge and resources with teachers, students, homeowners, businesses and municipalities.


Our Commitment to Sustainable Business Practices

Taking a holistic approach to sustainability yields environmental benefits and gives Sonoco Recycling a competitive edge. We’re both a producer of sustainable packaging and part of the recycling supply chain that gives those items a second life.

Knowing the ins and outs of a package's life cycle helps us help you reach environmental and business goals.
