In addition to these hydro-pulpers, we collaborated with beverage cup stewards like Tim Hortons, municipalities, collectors and sorters—all interested in expanding Blue Box materials and maximizing their value.
While we reached our goal in advance ofwe continue to look for new opportunities to increase the number of restaurants with programs to divert the full range of our waste materials from landfill. Resolute Forest Products owns or operates over 40 pulp and paper mills and wood products facilities in the United States, Canada and South Korea, and power generation assets in Canada.
Our current challenge is the accessibility of recycling programs that accept and process our hot beverage cups, both for our restaurants as well as for our guests, through household recycling systems.

Diane Slopek-Weber of Tim Hortons said the company made a strategic decision to sell the paper cup division in order to concentrate on its core business. Working Together to Increase Diversion We continue to work with various partners to identify new waste service providers and to improve equipment and processes for our Restaurant Owners.
We continue to encourage our guests to use ceramic mugs, plates and bowls when dining in our restaurants, and guests are also provided with a 10 cent discount when they bring in their own travel mug for hot beverage refills.
By integrating our restaurant delivery empty return trips with our inbound vendor deliveries we avoided 4, shipments, resulting in tonnes of reduced carbon emissions.
