Cascades and Tricentris are thrilled to announce that they have signed a three-year partnership agreement. As part of this deal, Tricentris will supply all of the cardboard recovered at its three sorting facilities to Cascades. This alliance between two of Quebec's leaders in cardboard recovery and recycling is all the more important because of its benefits for the environment and the local economy. For these two organizations, this deal will sustain the momentum they share from several other successful collaborations. Over the next three years, 75,000 tonnes of cardboard obtained through selective collection and sorted by Tricentris will be transferred to Cascades. Sourced from the recycling bins of the 1.9 million Quebec residents served by Tricentris, this material will be used to manufacture Cascades products made with recycled fibres. The materials are therefore used, sorted and processed entirely within Quebec. click Read More below for additional detail

To be successful in this growing market, brand owners must ensure their packaging both delights consumers and protects the product.
