GREEN BAY, Wisconsin , March 17, 2022 (press release) –

Georgia-Pacific has announced that it plans to close the Green Bay Day Street facility over the next 18 months. This decision does not affect Georgia-Pacific's other operations in Green Bay. The decision to shut down the mill does not reflect the hard work that Day Street employees have performed throughout the years to serve Georgia-Pacific's customers. They have done an admirable job operating these lines as safely and productively as possible.

The primary reasons for this decision are a combination of changing customer demand, bath tissue upgrades and investments at other Georgia-Pacific facilities, and less competitive assets at the Day Street mill.

Tissue manufacturing at the site will end in mid-May, with some other parts of the mill shutting down in September. The Day Street mill will continue to make napkins until the Fall of 2023.

This decision will impact approximately 190 jobs at the mill. However, eligible and interested employees will be able to apply for open roles at our other Georgia-Pacific facilities in Green Bay, including 100-plus roles for the recently announced investment the company is making at the Broadway mill.

Georgia-Pacific’s focus in the coming weeks and months is to continue to safely operate the mill while supporting our employees during the transition.
