Americas: UPM Raflatac label waste program expands

UPM Raflatac’s RafCycle recycling solution has expanded to the US and Canada, giving new life to self-adhesive label waste that would otherwise be landfilled.

Converter and printer Fort Dearborn Company as well as several brand owners are participating in the launch.

UPM Raflatac collects the paper and PET liner waste from its RafCycle partners and recycles it into new materials.

The North American launch of the program includes printers/converters, brands and recyclers.

The company has also partnered with Sustana and Kal-Polymers to recycle the paper and PET label liner waste from its RafCycle partners.
