Paper recycling is the process of recovering waste paper and remaking it into new paper products.
There are three categories of paper that can be used as feedstock for making recycled paper:
- Mill broke is paper trimmings and other paper scrap from the manufacture of paper, and is recycled internally in a paper mill.
- Pre-consumer waste is material which left the paper mill, which has been discarded before it was ready for consumer use.
- Post-consumer waste is material discarded after consumer use, such as old magazines, old newspapers, office waste, old telephone directories, and residential mixed paper.
Paper recycling uses less energy than virgin paper production and the production process also creates less water & air pollution than virgin paper production process. It also reduces the amount of material going to landfill. In addition to these environmental benefits, recycling waste paper it makes economic sense as it is a low cost material. These factors combined create a market with increasing demand.
