The Environmental Impact of Paper Manufacturing

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 20, 2013

As a leading plastic packaging manufacturer in Massachusetts we thought you might like to know a bit about the paper manufacturing process as the paper vs. plastic debate rages on.

Unfortunately, the paper making process is not a clean one. According to the U.S. Toxic Release Inventory report published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pulp and paper mills are among the worst polluters to air, water and land of any industry in the country. The Worldwatch Institute offers similar statistics for the rest of the world. Each year millions of pounds of highly toxic chemicals such as toluene, methanol, chlorine dioxide, hydrochloric acid, and formaldehyde are released into the air and water from paper making plants around the world.

Paper making also uses up vast quantities of trees. But trees are a renewable resource, which means that once one is cut down another can be planted in its place. In fact, much of the wood used by paper companies in the U.S. comes from privately owned tree farms where forests are planted, groomed and thinned for harvest in 20 to 35 year cycles, depending on the tree species. Around the world, tree farms supply 16% of all wood used in the paper industry while the bulk comes from second growth forests. Only 9% of the wood used to make paper is harvested from old growth forests, which are impossible to replace because of their maturity.

Yet, while tree farms or plantations help feed the demand for wood, they can't provide the plant and animal diversity found in natural forests. Plus, according to a 1996 report from the U.S. Forest Service, the rate of harvest for softwood trees in the southern United States outpaced growth for the first time since 1953.

Roll-Off Dumpster Liners For Every Business That Uses Dumpsters

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 13, 2013

Roll-off dumpster liners are trash bags made specifically for dumpsters. They are used by contractors, builders, junk removal companies, asbestos abatement companies, waste disposal companies, manufacturers, and any other company that makes use of dumpsters.

Depending on the specific needs of your company, there are different requirements for the dumpster liners that your business should purchase. Dumpster liner specifications include thickness, color, size, chemical make-up, type of use, and manufacturing technique.

Every company in the construction industry as well as environmental services can count on roll off dumpster liners to keep materials contained. Additionally, any company that uses or is involved with materials that are hazardous to public health and the environment can use dumpster liners for containment and protection as well.

Dumpster liners are easy to use, quickly installed and are ready to use. As environmental laws become more involved and comprehensive the need for dumpster liners for more and more companies has increased.

For containing liquid waste or semi-solid waste, dumpster liners are the perfect solution. No company image wants to be tarnished by transporting dumpsters that are dripping liquids.

Dumpster liners are made from tough plastic and are usually black opaque in color and the thicknesses typically range from 3 MIL to 12 MIL. The most popular container sizes are 20, 30 and 40 yard. Dumpster liners can be made for larger railway trailers and truck trailers as well.

Contact Atlantic Poly for more information on dumpster liners.

The Types and Uses of Pallet Wrap

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 06, 2013

Pallet wraps are used in all types of businesses, but there are all types of pallet wraps. Pallet covers and pallet shrouds are very easy to use for large items. The take less time to use, so are more cost-effective from a labor and time standpoint. At Atlantic Poly, specialty plastic  shrouds and wraps can be custom-made in most size objects with no minimum order size.

Stretch films are another pallet wrap product that can help with costs. When pallets are wrapped, damage and theft are both decreased. Hand stretch wrap from Atlantic Poly is super puncture resistant and has excessive load retention for additional protection.  Hand stretch wrap is also fairly quiet to use.

Pallet Stretch Wrap  is better used for both value and quality. Great for holding products in place and protecting them from dirt, moisture and theft.

Pre-cut gusseted bags are often used for pallet and machinery protection.  For easy dispensing these come perforated on a roll.

For all your pallet wrapping needs, contact Atlantic Poly.
