BUSINESS: Halltown factory closes, about 60 jobs lost | News

After 153 years in business, the Halltown Paperboard Mill is permanently closing its waste paper recycling operations, wiping out some 60 manufacturing jobs.

Ox Industries notified its employees Friday that the mill was closing, confirmed Dennis Jarvis, executive director of the Jefferson County Development Authority.

A waste paper drop-off for area residents at the mill on Eyster Road off US 340 no longer accepts household paper for recycling. The mill recycles used paper to manufacture reinforced cardboard for various national and international commercial clients.
