Tubes and Cores

Greif is a leading recycler in North America, and these 100% Recycled Paperboard convolute and spiral tubes and cores are a big part of that fact. They can be used for tube, can, and core manufacturing. 


Greif offers many grades of tubes, as well as tubes for specialty applications. All paper packaging at Greif follows a robust circular economy supply chain, often resulting in a reclaimed old corrugated container becoming something brand new.

Paper packaging from Greif is a mainstay in the North American industrial landscape. The popularity of sustainable packaging that holds and protects products from their production to end users pushes offerings like corrugated tubes and cores beyond a simple, cost-effective solution.

Customization Options

Construction forming tubes, Protect-A-Floor, and many textile tubes can be customized in appearance. Tubes and cores from Greif can end up in many applications supporting paper manufacturing (at Greif and elsewhere), yarns, textiles, carpet manufacturing, and more.


Made with 100% Recycled Paperboard

Greif is a leading recycler in North America, where our paper business is a net positive recycler.

We are serious about sustainability and focused on reducing the environmental impact of our products. The circular economy process flow starts with collecting fiber from used Greif products and other sources and ends with producing 100% recycled paperboard products. Our recycling facilities compile and sort recovered fiber material, bale it, and deliver it to Greif paper mills.

Collected fiber gets broken down through a repulping process. Once the fibers are separated and free of contaminants, recycled paperboard results after a milling process. We use our paperboard to make tubes and cores of various diameters. These tubes and cores end up in many applications, including paper manufacturing, yarns, textiles, and carpet manufacturing.


FSC®, SFI®, and PEFC Certifications ensure that products come from responsibly managed forests that produce environmental, social, and economic benefits. Greif customers can purchase coated recycled corrugated board with confidence.

Please ask us for more information about our FSC-certified products.
