How is Your Waste Paper Recycled?
With a wide range of waste materials coming from your office each week, it can be quite overwhelming when it comes to getting rid of them. Do you just chuck them in a big waste bin and hope for the best? Or get them collected, recycled and transformed into reusable office materials? We think the latter. But, how does this process work and where do you start?
In terms of waste paper, you should place all of it into a recycling bin and contact recycling services like Global Office Supplies to collect your unwanted paper and send it off for recycling.
Where Does it Go?
When collecting your unwanted paper, Global Office Supplies will send an eco-friendly van big enough to carry all of your waste. From there, we will take it to a recycling plant where it will be separated based on size and cleanliness, etc.
How Does it Work?
Once the paper has been placed into its relevant section or ‘grade’ it is then washed with soapy water to remove any markings, staples, glue and ink before being mixed with water to create a slurry. This slurry allows other paper materials to be added in order to create different types of paper products such as office paper, newsprints and cardboard.
What Happens Next?
After the slurry has rolled out into large sheets of clean paper products, it is left to dry where it will be rolled back up in preparation to be cut and modified, ready to be distributed to shops and suppliers. The process is that simple!
Should You Recycle Your Waste Paper?
So, with only a few steps required, with you just needing to collect waste paper and contact a recycling service, we wonder why you wouldn’t recycle? It not only helps the environment and creates new products, it will also give you positive brand recognition as you are showing you care about the environment. It’s a win-win situation.
