Great Plains Packaging is part of the family of Vanguard Companies and are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality of products and services. We are also committed to developing a strong supply chain and supporting the communities in which we work. We know that our companies are only as strong as our reputation and that the actions of our suppliers are a reflection of Great Plains Packaging.
We believe in building strong relationships with our suppliers. We require working conditions in our supply chain that are safe, expect workers are treated with respect, dignity and fairness, and that supplier processes are environmentally and socially responsible. All suppliers and their manufacturing facilities, including all subcontracting facilities, are expected to comply with these standards.
Great Plains Packaging is committed to comply with all legal and regulatory requirements and emphasize the prevention of pollution and waste reduction. We are committed to using recycled raw materials and products when possible and work towards designing and selling products that will be 100% recyclable at the end of their useful life. Since 2010, we have partnered with our customers to recycle approximately 123,000 lbs. or 61.5 tons of tubes and cores each year.
