PORT TOWNSEND, WA, June 6, 2019 (Local News) -The Port Townsend Paper Corporation aims to increase its intake of recycled cardboard, while also reducing its consumption of fresh water by close to a million gallons per day.

Both improvements are tied to the planned replacement of the company’s Old Corrugated Container pulper, which is 22 years old, scheduled for this fall, but not before the public comment period expires June 28.

Kevin Scott, General Manager of the paper mill just outside of Port Townsend, recently took The Leader on a tour of the facilities, during which he outlined the goals for the replacement pulper.
