is it re-cycled?
is fairly straightforward to re-cycle. At our premises it is sorted
& baled into "mill sized bales", which weigh about half
a tonne each. When there are enough bales of a grade they are delivered
to a paper mill. For most applications the bales are broken &
stirred in water to create pulp, then the inks are removed. The pulp
is then rolled & dried to be formed into paper.
can be re-cycled?
are many grades of paper,
but for practical purposes we segregate into white letter papers;
coloured papers like invoices, cheques etc; travel & other brochures;
mixed office papers; newspaper & magazines. Please see the specifications
link for more detail. Paper can be re-cycled into writing papers,
toilet & kitchen tissues, wrapping papers & newsprint. Some
mixtures are incorporated into cardboard. Shredded paper can be included
in the appropriate grade.
causes problems with re-cycling paper?
inclusion of small quantities of other grades, for example a few sheets
of coloured paper or manila envelopes in a large quantity of white paper
will downgrade the total, & it is often too labour intensive to
be viable to remove it. Plastic folders cause particular problems &
can be very difficult to remove - it may mean that the paper cannot
practically be re-cycled. Banana skins, yoghurt pots, bottles &
other general wastes also present a health & safety problem to our
