Often times, you buy something cool and the box it came in goes to the dumpster. 

Hurley Packaging Company works to clean things up by manufacturing renewable boxes. 

The business has been creating packaging in Lubbock for more than 20 years. 

They take all of the scrap corrugated from manufacturing boxes and feeds it into a monster recycling machine. 

In an average year Hurley Packaging takes over 22 million pounds of paper that would otherwise end up in the landfill, and turns it into molded pulp packaging. 

The company currently produces chick feeder trays, egg flats, pallets, boxes and more. 

They are developing new products to go green by creating alternatives to wood and plastic items. 

Fox 34's Brittany Price gets a tour of the manufacturing process with Hurley Companies President and CEO, Tom Hurley.
