"Voluntary paper recovery for recycling is one of our industry's greatest success stories," said AF&PA President and CEO Donna Harman.  "More paper is recovered for recycling from municipal solid waste streams than any other commodity, in part, because of programs across the country like these we are recognizing today."

"We salute the winners of the 2013 AF&PA Recycling Awards for displaying excellence in paper recycling at the business, community and school levels," added Graphic Packaging International, Inc. President and CEO and AF&PA Board Chairman David Scheible, who announced the winners.

This year's winners each receive a $2,000 cash prize and an original framed artwork and gain media recognition through the award presentation in their local market.
