Riverside Paper has partnered with Natural Organic Process Enterprises LLC as our commercial composter of choice for the Hampton Roads area. Please either contact your sales rep or NOPE Virginia directly to see how we can all make a difference.

Riverside Paper Company is committed to providing you environmentally friendly or “Green” alternatives for traditional paper and packaging products. We proudly offer items that are 100% biodegradable, compostable, recyclable, As well as made from renewable resources. We offer cups, containers, and cutlery made from corn, potatoes, wheat and even bamboo. These materials are formed into products that are similar to the petroleum based products that are so widely used today, without all of the harmful materials.

As consumers are increasingly committed to protecting their environment, the demand for biodegradable materials will increase. Retailers who use environmentally friendly products will distinguish themselves from their competitors.

The Harvest Collection™ from Genpak is a new and exciting line of compostable plates, compostable food containers, and compostable cups that are produced from naturally occurring, annually renewable resources such as corn, rice and wheat that will completely compost and biodegrade when placed into a commercially run composting facility. The compostable products within the Harvest Collection™ line look and feel just like traditional top-of-the-line plastic items, but have the added benefit of being produced from annually renewable resources. Choose from a wide selection of biodegradable food service products including dinnerware items, serving bowls, cups and hinged take out containers.
