KINGSPORT, Tenn. (WJHL) — Domtar Packaging's Kingsport Mill is up and running after three years and a $350 million renovation project–now as the second largest recycled containerboard production facility in North America. The company announced yesterday it had produced its first roll of %100 recycled containerboard. Mill Manager Troy Wilson said the moment the first roll came off the production line was like a deep breath. 'It was like wow, we finally made it,' Wilson told News Channel 11. Employees label a roll of recycled containerboard.
