Impact Recycling Partners, an American Box Company, Rethinks Zero Waste

Oct 10, 2022 | All, News

The brand’s launch represents a huge step towards advancing the circular economy

American Box Company, a Main Line Equity Partners portfolio company, recently announced the introduction of its newest division, Impact Recycling Partners. Impact Recycling Partners aims to expand on the 65-year successful track record at American Box through the expansion of additional, innovative zero waste solutions for its customers. While American Box’s focus has been on giving once-used boxes a second life, Impact is focused on helping organizations break the status quo when it comes to their waste and recycling programs.

In just the last decade, American Box has been able to accomplish some significant milestones through its programs, such as:

  • Generating over $27M in revenue for their partners through landfill diversion programs
  • Giving over 139M boxes a second life
  • Diverting over 38,000 tons of mixed plastics from landfills

Accomplishing this demonstrated that American Box was in a unique position to do more for their current and future customers under the new division, Impact Recycling Partners. Founder and Managing Partner of Main Line Equity Partners, Chris Randazzo states: “Expanding our innovative zero waste offerings under Impact Recycling Partners was a natural evolution for the business. Our landfill diversion partners and customers alike all share with us the same priority – the need to work with an organization that can help them meet their sustainability goals. Like Main Line Equity Partners, these organizations are focused on making a positive impact for their employees, customers, and shareholders.”

American Box will continue to provide once-used boxes to its customers as a sustainable, cost- effective alternative to purchasing newly manufactured boxes. Impact Recycling Partners will compliment these programs by offering innovative zero waste solutions, zero waste facility certification, full waste stream management, and sustainability consulting services.

About Impact Recycling Partners (IRP) and American Box Company

American Box started in 1956 with a mission to give materials a second life. Impact Recycling Partners (IRP) further aims to positively impact the environment by rethinking the world’s approach to zero waste. IRP creates customized waste and recycling programs for organizations and helps them pursue zero waste facility certification. Traditional waste haulers take waste to landfills or divert it to recycling centers, prolonging the negative impact. Instead, IRP finds creative ways to repurpose resources, giving used materials a new purpose.
