June 17 — Packaging company Rock-Tenn, which calls itself North America´s largest paper recycler, is opening a second recycling facility in the Seattle area.

The Norcross, Ga.-based company said the new site is within Seattle´s city limits and joins another location 12 miles away in Renton, Wash.

“As a national leader in recycling and waste diversion, Rock-Tenn knows that this is good business, and we are pleased that we are able to support the city’s zero waste and sustainability goals while providing additional jobs that support sustainability,” said Scott Wells, northwest area general manager of recycling and waste solutions.

Rock-Tenn recently completed its acquisition of Smurfit-Stone Container Corp., another major paper recycler and packaging company. Rock-Tenn makes corrugated and consumer packaging.
