International Recycling Pallet Central Enterprises has recently acquired an AQSIQ (The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine) license, which allows us to buy and sell recyclables directly in China, with permission from the Chinese government. We can fill a 20 or 40 foot container for international shipping. Lower grade, non corrugated (a.k.a. “brown”) paper is in high demand.
