ROCHESTER, NY - American Packaging Corporation Flexographic Printing & Laminating facility in Story City, Iowa was one of ten Iowa organizations and businesses to receive an Excellence in Recycling award from the Iowa Recycling Association .

"We are very excited to have had so many wonderful projects submitted this year for the Iowa Awards for Excellence in Recycling. The winners this year continue to raise the bar for excellence in recycling" said Yvette Clapp, President of the Iowa Recycling Association.

"American Packaging is honored to accept this premier environmental award on behalf of all its employees. As a team we embraced sustainability and it is one of our core values.

We should all be proud of our efforts in preserving Iowa's natural resources" said Ray Graham, Operations Manager for the facility.
