BSA Scout Troops 270B & G earned the pulp and paper merit badge. Part of earning the badge is to take a tour of a papermill to see how the process works from beginning to end.
On December 10, 2022, Maryland Paper Company in Williamsport, Maryland, assisted the Troops by giving them a tour of their recycling plant. The tour consisted of showing the Scouts how the company uses recycled cardboard and paper to make items ranging from paper to building materials. The Scouts asked in-depth questions, covering business to machinery and labor.
Thank you to Maryland Paper Company and John Wright, Merit Badge counselor, for helping our youth learn important life skills.
