Riciclo aperto 2014

What happens to the newspapers, boxes, bags, paper and cardboard packaging that we throw in the recycling bin?

How are they recycled and brought to new life?

You can find out all about it from April 10 to 12, at the thirteenth edition of Open Recycling, the national “open doors” event organized by Comieco, in collaboration with Assocarta and Assografici, which for 13 years have been welcoming citizens, schools, institutions, media, operators in the sector and all those interested in paper industry facilities.

Scatolificio Sandra will not miss this date and on Friday April 11 will welcome classes 4A and 4B from the Pietro Cocconi Primary School in Parma.

This is an event that reveals what happens to the newspapers and bags, paper and cardboard packaging that are diligently deposited in the recycling bins.

Through this initiative, it is possible to see the process of rebirth and transformation of paper into new paper reels and new products (boxes, trays, newspapers).

Thus, for the kids, the collective action of daily picking up every bit of paper and throwing it in the place intended for it takes on a sense of actual usefulness.
