Posted by: Kaity Baril on March 6, 2020

The Pennsylvania Resources Council has launched a RECYCLED PAPER COOPERATIVE to make 100% recycled paper more affordable by purchasing large volumes of office paper directly from a western Pennsylvania paper mill passing the savings on to coop members.

PRC is dedicated to keeping PA office paper 100% recycled, 100% local by making it affordable and convenient,” according to PRC Managing Director Justin Stockdale. “Taking part in the Paper Coop is literally as easy as 1, 2, 3: place your order online, receive delivery instructions via email and then pick up your paper supply.”

By purchasing 100% recycled content paper through the coop, members can save more than $10 per case compared to average market prices.

“The average mid-size office consumes one ton of paper per year, about 40 cartons. By joining PRC’s coop, small to medium size businesses and nonprofits will have an opportunity to purchase 100% recycled content paper at an extremely competitive price,” said Stockdale. “Each ton of 100% recycled content paper purchased from the coop will preserve 24 trees, conserve 7,000 gallons of water, support local jobs and much more.”


Paper orders can be placed through the Recycled Paper Cooperative store until further notice. PRC will make paper orders available for pick-up within 3 to 4 weeks after normal business operations are deemed allowable by the Governor’s Office. Members will be notified via email of any and all updates regarding distribution of paper orders directly.
