BOISE CASCADE JOINS IN NATIONWIDE CHALLENGE TO INCREASE RECYCLING

BOISE CASCADE JOINS IN NATIONWIDE CHALLENGE TO INCREASE RECYCLING
 BOISE, Idaho, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Boise Cascade Corp. (NYSE: BCC) announced today that it has joined with several other major corporations, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and several public interest groups in a nationwide challenge to increase the recycling of office wastepaper by 1995.
 Last year, the company joined the National Office Paper Recycling Project (NOPRP), an organization of eight major U.S. corporations and federal, state, county and municipal government organizations whose primary objective is to maximize the recycling of office paper and minimize its disposal. Boise Cascade is accepting the NOPRP challenge to the top 1,000 U.S. corporations to significantly increase recycling.
 Recycling is one way to reduce the amount of paper that currently goes into the municipal solid waste system. Boise Cascade is addressing this environmental issue by utilizing wastepaper in its manufacturing processes and by collecting wastepaper for recycling at the company's corporate headquarters and at many of its other locations. "Our goal is to increase our office wastepaper collection rate by 10 percent a year until we cannot economically collect more," said John B. Fery, chairman of the board and chief executive officer.
 Boise Cascade offers its customers a broad line of recycled papers in addition to its full line of virgin-fiber papers. The company's Vancouver, Wash., paper mill produces recycled uncoated white papers; the Fort Frances, Ontario, paper mill manufactures two families of recycled groundwood printing and publishing papers; and the mills at DeRidder, La., and Wallula, Wash., produce containerboard made with recycled fiber. In 1993, the company's West Tacoma, Wash., newsprint mill will begin producing recycled newsprint.
 Boise Cascade Corp. is an integrated paper and forest products company headquartered in Boise, with operations located in the United States and Canada. The company manufactures and distributes paper and paper products, office products and building products, and owns and manages timberland to support these operations.
