As seen in the Southside Daily, Chamber member TFC announced on Tuesday — America Recycles Day — that residents of Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Suffolk can now add cartons to the list of accepted recyclables.
Michael Benedetto’s family-owned recycling facility has been processing household goods like aluminum cans, plastic and glass bottles, cardboard and paper for more than 40 years. Benedetto, president and owner of Tidewater Fibre Corporation, said that for as long as he can remember, the items the facility could recycle remained the same.
Due to a grant from the Carton Council of North America – an assembly of four major carton manufacturers working towards increasing carton recycling throughout the country – TFC was able to implement the new program, enabling the facility to recycle the food and beverage cartons.
