Reducing Waste 

We strive to minimize waste. 

ACCO Brands is committed to reducing the waste it produces and the amount of material going into landfills.  The company’s ASPIRE program emphasizes LEAN production and sites are committed to manufacturing products with as little waste as possible.

  • The Booneville, Mississippi, facility recycles about 336,000 pounds of paperboard each year.
  • The Alexandria, Pennsylvania, facility implemented a paper roll core recycling program which saves 95 tons from going to the landfill each year.  The site has decreased the percent of waste generated from 8.05 percent to 5.59 percent in a seven-year period.
  • Tilibra has completed multiple projects to reduce waste in its facility in Bauru, Brazil.  One involved the reduction of contaminated liquid material.  To maintain high-quality production, the liquids in machinery must be kept clean.  With the aim of improving the length of usage for liquids and a reduction of waste, Tilibra invested in machinery filter equipment.  As a result, the liquid disposal rate was improved, lowering the frequency of fluid replacement from every 15 days to approximately every six months.
  • ACCO Brands EMEA actively segregates waste and recycles the following items: paperboard, paper, wood, metal, plastic and electrical materials.  The facilities recycle more than 900 tons of material each year.
  • The Sidney, New York, location reduced its number of compactor cans going to the landfill from about 40 cans per year to 12 cans per year.  The site has maintained this figure for the last four years and recycles everything except food waste and restroom garbage.
