RPTA Resources

RPTA provides its members with a vast array of resources from educational programs and whitepapers to training modules. We have provided you with a few samples of RPTA's work to demonstrate the value we provide to our members and the industry:

RPTA Press

Members regularly receive RPTA Press, a newsletter with Board and Task Force updates, industry, education and research news and information from partner organizations.

Select publications

Over the years, the work of RPTA has provided its member companies and the industry up-to-date information and research in areas key to advancing the efficiency and reliability of the recycling process. These publications cover a wide variety of topics associated with making recycled paperboard products.
