Fibre Box Association Certification

Western’s recycle plant is a certified laboratory for the Fibre Box Association certification test protocol for wax treatment replacement corrugated containers. This is a voluntary standard for repulping and recycling corrugated fiberboard treated to improve its performance in the presence of water and water vapor. The corrugated industry developed this recyclability standard that allows these wax alternatives to be tested, proven, and certified recyclable if they pass the required protocol.
