We love the environment as much as you do

At Jackson Paper, we work hard to protect our natural resources and safeguard them for future generations. We invest significantly in facility and machine upgrades at the mill, and we have systems in place that meet or exceed air and water quality regulations.Unlike most paper mills, we fire our boiler with waste-wood – not fossil fuels. The boiler generates steam that powers the paper-making machinery and heats the plant. A pollution control scrubber prevents wood ash from leaving the boiler.Our closed-loop water system and treatment facility allows us to reuse the large quantities of water needed to make paper. The result is zero discharge of waste into our sewer or waterways.We are the largest manufacturer of 100-percent recycled paper in North Carolina. To produce our paper, we divert approximately 109,000 tons of Old Corrugated Containers (OCC) – or cardboard – from our landfills every year.
