Weis Markets

SUNBURY, Pa. — The Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania recently recognized Weis Markets for its commitment to recycling, and its program to recycle waxed cardboard used to ship and store fresh vegetables and meats.

In 2010, Weis Markets teamed up with Envirolog to recycle its waxed cardboard and produce Envirolog fireplace logs, which are sold in Weis stores. Typically, supermarkets send most of their waxed cardboard to landfills, since it is difficult to recycle.

Today, all 163 Weis Markets’ stores participate in the recycling program.
