Our first location in Calgary in 1995

Capital Paper Recycling Ltd started out in 1995 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Our first location was situated in a 4000 square foot industrial bay in the South East of Calgary. Capital Paper began as a three person outfit, owning just a single forklift, a 5 tonne truck and two downstroke balers.

After making its name as a quality service provider within the Calgary recycling industry Capital Paper Recycling Ltd expanded its operations to Alberta's Capital, opening a facility in Edmonton approximately four years later.
