Our People

Greif places the utmost importance on protecting, engaging, and developing a diverse workforce.


Greif paper packaging is a net-positive recycler. In simple terms, we recycle more than we make! It helps that most of our paper packaging is made from a renewable and reclaimed source – old corrugated containers. In other words, your old pizza box!

Recycling Cardboard in Charlotte, NC

Greif recycles corrugated fiber at their Charlotte, NC facility located at 4915 Hovis Road Charlotte, NC 28208. This recycling process is done with the help of their expert staff and advanced machinery. Bales come into the facility from grocery stores, big box stores, and other businesses that take in cardboard.

The team at Charlotte works hard to organize the old corrugated cardboard. After the sorting is complete, the loose pieces are sent through a baler which compacts them into large bales.

The processed bales get shipped to paper mills for use in the creation of new paper products.

Greif is committed to providing a sustainable and eco-friendly solution to cardboard and paper waste. Their Charlotte facility is a prime example of their dedication to the environment and a circular economy.

Efforts like these not only help to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, but they also help to bring more recycled materials back into the economy. Greif’s Charlotte facility is one of many facilities that are leading the way in turning waste into a valuable resource.

Through their innovative and sustainable initiatives, Greif is working to create a better future for the environment and the economy.
