JERICHO, NY — Harmon Associates, the sole provider of recovered fiber to Georgia-Pacific Corporation''s paper and paperboard mills that was acquired by the company in 2000, recently changed its name to GP Harmon Recycling, according to Recycling Today.
GP Harmon Recycling made the name change to reflect its position as a leader in the international paper recycling business and to show the expansion of its commodity business to include other recyclables such as plastics and aluminum, the story stated.
Marc Forman, president of GP Harmon Recycling, said: "We have built a collaborative network of trading partners around the world. Internationally, many countries are challenged with meeting the ever-growing demand for recycled raw materials. By bringing the world''s markets to our suppliers, GP Harmon Recycling is improving the availability of recycled fiber around the world."
Implementing extensive recycling programs can help reduce landfill disposal and capture sought-after plastic and aluminum scrap for use in other products, the story noted.
GP Harmon Recycling''s expertise from years of experience in paper recycling gives them credibility in developing recycling streams for other materials, the story added.
