Port Townsend Paper produces high-quality paper and cardboard products. These products include linerboard, medium, converting grades, and specialty grades like gumming kraft and laminating kraft. PTPC paper is used to make fruit boxes, pizza boxes, cardboard displays, fiber cement siding, and dozens of other products.
About one-third of the corrugated cardboard (OCC) recycled in Washington state is recycled at PTPC. Not only could the cardboard you recycle end up in a product made at our mill, but OCC used at the Port Townsend Paper mill comes from the rest of the Northwest as well.
Locally, Jefferson and Clallam Counties’ old corrugated cardboard is recycled at the Port Townsend facility. Recycling this cardboard locally minimizes the need to ship it to more remote recycling facilities, which reduces the use of fuels and air emissions from transportation. Each week, the Port Townsend Paper mill recycles enough OCC to fill an entire football field 10 feet deep with cardboard.
