Production Manufacturing Technician

Our Team

The Georgia-Pacific Toledo mill is the first and only containerboard mill built by GP from the ground up and has been in continuous operation since 1958. It is also the leading recycler of corrugated containers on the West Coast, each year rescuing nearly 500,000 tons of old, used containerboard from landfills and converting it into new product. Located in Lincoln County on the central Oregon coast, Toledo is seven miles from Newport and is a 2-hour, 30-minute drive from the Portland airport. The Toledo mill is also the host facility for the company’s Juno® Technology unit, which uses a patented breakthrough process to recover paper fiber from materials that previously were landfilled or incinerated.
