About Continental Paper Grading

Continental Paper Grading Company was established in 1919 in Chicago, Illinois. While we have remained an independent waste paper merchant for nearly a century of operation, our company has grown into a global business with a network of waste paper and pulp processing facilities, warehouses, and sales offices throughout North America. We proudly manage over 1.2 million tons of waste paper and secondary fiber yearly, and we buy and sell all grades of waste paper, post-industrial and post-consumer plastics, recyclable metals, and other products.

At CPG, our primary focus is on the needs and requirements of our worldwide network of vendors and our customers. We are pleased to offer a full range of services in waste paper management, including financing, warehousing, logistics, shredding, baling, roll cutting, and much more. We are a full-service waste material brokerage firm, and our size gives us top-tier buying power and financing abilities, enabling us to deliver products at highly-competitive prices and to extend financing opportunities which represent significant return on investment.

Our approach to business emphasizes building relationships and fostering repeat business with our many vendors and customers. We also operate our own in-house customer service department staffed with friendly industry professionals who specialize in solving problems and answering all of our vendors and customers’ questions. As a result of our dedication to quality service, we have been able to retain many of our customers, a number of which for more than four decades.
