MANISTIQUE — The three R’s, reduce, reuse, and recycle, is a practice that a lot of people stick to.
But it’s not very often you get to see what it’s used for….
“At U.P. Paper, we produce 100% recycled natural craft,” said Greg Anderson, General Manager for U.P. Paper. “We use old corrugated containers and other recycled brown paper which is then used for paper bags which you’d see in McDonald’s, and also for a filler in any package you might get with a paper filler.”
It’s no wonder that the Manistique area suffered when the 95 year old mill shut down in 2015.
But, it wasn’t long after that the mill was purchased, and re-opened in 2016.
Starting with less than 5 employees, U.P. Paper now employees nearly 100 people.
