When you see any of the following three symbols on a corrugated container, you know it can be recycled.
The Corrugated Recycles symbol is used worldwide to both promote the recycling of corrugated and advertise its ultimate recyclability.
WHAT DO THE SYMBOLS MEAN?
The term Corrugated Recycles is both a statement of fact and a way to promote recycling. By printing the symbol on corrugated products, consumers are made aware of corrugated's inherent recyclability. Placing the symbol on a corrugated container does not indicate that "this container is made from recycled material." Rather, it simply means that "this container can and should be recycled."
