On America Recycles Day (November 15), Mauser Packaging Solutions recognizes the importance and impact of recycling, which has contributed to American prosperity and the protection of our environment. The recycling rate has increased from less than 7 percent in 1960 to the 2019 rate of 32 percent. An EPA study found that recycling and reuse activities in the United States accounted for 681,000 jobs and $37.8 billion in wages.1
The recycling efforts of communities and business throughout the United States have helped with this success and growth. Mauser Packaging Solutions plays a vital role in packaging re-use and recycling. We recycle thousands of tons of steel every year and millions of pounds of HDPE, saving valuable raw materials and protecting our environment. Our worldwide network of over 90 reconditioning facilities collects and processes various types of used industrial containers from steel and plastic drums to Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs), with reuse as the primary goal. Containers that cannot be reused are recycled to produce raw material for other products. Our Infinity Series product line provides customers with the most comprehensive portfolio of UN-verified industrial packaging with recycled content.
