Pick up the Pulp

Reserve Your Pulp & Tailings Byproducts.

In an effort to better serve you, American Crystal Sugar Company has developed an electronic system for the notification of pulp and tailings byproducts. This includes wet pulp, pressed pulp, dry pulp shreds, dry pulp fines, dry pulp pellets, and tailings.

Each factory will update the quantity of available byproducts daily. Users will receive notifications by text or email with information on the volume of products available, the fee (if applicable), and a link to make reservations. The user can reserve products directly through their smartphone or email for pickup that day.
