Solid Waste Reduction

PRINT NW recycles tons of paper and cardboard annually. Very little paper scrap waste enters a landfill.

Our facilities recycle almost everything:

  • Used pallets are sold/returned to pallet wholesalers to be reused
  • Wrapping materials are reused or recycled
  • Packing material cushions are made from eco-friendly biodegradable plastic that is air filled
  • Old forklift batteries are recycled
  • Leftover inks are used before and before new inks are mixed
  • Old ink is sent to Safety Clean to be recycled
  • Press rags are cleaned and reused/recycled through G&K Services
  • All recyclable materials are recycled through our recycling partners
