About Kruger Recycling

We collect, recycle and process materials locally into high-quality household and institutional paper products and packaging.

Your partner of choice

Since we are independent and process the material in our own plants, our clients benefit from a comprehensive, reliable and personalized service.

As sustainability issues are increasingly a priority for organizations, our innovative processes and the industry’s shortest collection route enable you to reduce your environmental footprint.


Our first recovery plant opened in 1979, recycling and sorting grocery store boxes. Over the years, the capabilities expanded to include all types of waste paper.

In the late 1990’s, we began offering centralized buying for Kruger mills and added a brokerage group. The following decade saw more expansion including biomass and plant procurement. With determination and an eye on growth, we eventually reached a milestone of a million tonnes of recycled waste per year.

With the circular economy at the heart of its business model, Kruger installed a new state-of-the-art containerboard machine at its plant in Trois-Rivières, Quebec in 2017, which produces over 500,000 tonnes of recycled cardboard annually.
