Greif is a fully integrated company, making 100% recycled paperboard products and packaging. Within our Recycling Group, we help collect, process and bale recyclables at our plants to then be shipped to our paper mills. Our Paper Mill Group repulps those paper bales to be made into various grades of recycled paperboard and containerboard. Our Paper and Packaging Group then helps convert those rolls and sheets from the mill into finished paper products and packaging, which can range from Corrugated Boxes to Tubes and Cores to other various Paperboard Products.

In the United States, about 68% of all paper generated gets recycled. As of 2021, seven paper mills in Georgia use recycled paper and cardboard exclusively as their feedstock.
At the Sweetwater Paperboard Mill in Austell Georgia, Greif operates using 100% recycled feedstock to make new consumer packaging and the paper used in drywall.
