Huron Paper Stock Co Recycling Facility - Tour 

Ever wonder what happens to that Amazon shipping carton, or why you can't toss a pizza box in with the recycling (really?)?? Sustainability is not just wind turbines, solar panels and electric cars. A large component of Sustainability is dependent on recycling. Unlike new technologies that have sprung-up to support the sustainability movement, recyclers existed before environmental concerns had the public's attention. The Huron Paper Stock Company founded in 1955 is one of these businesses. Under the direction of third generation family member, Eric Schneider, Huron Paper Stock is branching out to meet a changing local business environment and current customer demands. If you have a strong interest in understanding Sustainable processes; or you are in a business that depends on having recyclable materials picked-up; or you are involved in a business that uses post recycled materials in packaging or in production - you should take this tour.  

For 3 family generations since 1955, Huron Paper Stock Company customers have appreciated Huron Paper Stock's commitment to professionalism, honesty, and integrity. Huron Paper Stock's reputation is known throughout the entire waste material recycling industry. Always available to discuss different grades of paper, and different methods of sorting paper, Huron Paper Stock looks forward to helping customers with their waste paper disposal needs.

**This tour will provide an insider's view of a paper recycling operation. However, different from others of our facility tours, this tour will be held outside where the operations take place. If you do not want to be exposed to the elements, or to any dust or dirt, do NOT go on this tour. 

*As there is no large meeting place to gather tour attendees are advised to wait in their cars until 5 minutes before the tour start time, There will be two tours. To insure that there is time for each tour, each tour will start promptly at its posted time. As this will be a functioning recycling operation in the middle of a workday, the number of professional attendees that can be accommodated will be extremely limited - Do not be left out!  

Due to the limited amount of space, there will be 2 different tour groups.  Make sure you register for the tour group you are able to attend. 

 

Group B will tour from 11:15am - 12:30pm
