Most countries have efficient systems to collect and sort waste paper. Did you know that India is one of the biggest importers of waste paper globally? This paper can be recycled to make similar paper products, drastically reducing the amount of waste that ends up at landfills. When the recycling process is completed 7 times over, the same paper can be used to generate bioenergy.
Recycled paper is made from paper that has been recovered and diverted from the solid waste collection stream. It is then collected, separated, cleaned and recycled for use. These attributes make recycled paper one of the best environmentally friendly products available in the market today - it costs the same as regular paper and works just as well.
Paper, unlike plastics and other packaging materials, contains no petrochemicals, making it completely renewable. The fibres can be recycled efficiently and since it’s made from a renewable natural resource, the raw materials that go into the manufacture of recycled paper will never be completely depleted.
Newspapers, cardboard, packaging stationery, post, invoices, office paper, magazines, catalogues, receipts, greeting cards, envelopes, bills and virtually any other clean and unlined paper is suitable for recycling.
Recycling paper reduces pollution, litter, waste and saves on landfill space. Recycled paper also provides the raw material for creating new products, apart from creating jobs and providing welfare to the community. Most importantly, recycling paper is the right thing to do for upcoming generations and the future of the planet.
Yes, shredded paper can definitely be recycled. To efficiently recycle shredded paper, it’s best if it is placed in a bag to avoid the shredded paper from being moved all over the place.
None of these items can be recycled. Paper plates have a plastic liner built in which keeps them from breaking when they have food on them. Plates without the plastic liner can't be recycled because of food residue. In the event that you have unlined, non-contaminated paper plates, then they can be recycled. Paper towels and tissues contain short fibres that can't be recycled.
Types of paper that are not recyclable are coated and treated paper, paper with food waste, juice and cereal boxes, paper cups, paper towels, and paper or magazines laminated with plastic.
Every tonne of recycled paper when used instead of virgin or conventional paper saves ~31800 litres of water, 2100 litres of oil, and 17 trees.
Surprisingly, high-grade paper is the single most wasted type of paper in the world today.
When paper is recycled, it can enjoy a second life as anything from newspaper to an egg carton. At Rescript, we are devoted to developing quality stationery products that can match the quality and costs of other products that are not manufactured from recycled materials.
Sadly, many bills and receipts are coated with BPA and this makes them impossible to recycle or compost. This is a missed opportunity as the world produces more bills, invoices and receipts than ever before in its history.
Surprisingly, glossy magazines can be recycled. If you own any old magazines, you have a few options in terms of getting rid of them in a useful way - if they are recent issues, you can donate them to libraries, waiting rooms or clinics but if they are older, you can donate them to paper recyclers so that the paperpresent in the magazines can be reused.
Only a few kinds of wrapping paper can be recycled. The types of wrapping paper that can’t be recycled are metallic wrapping paper, textured wrapping paper and wrapping paper will cellophane tape, ribbons or bows. If you’re not sure if you wrapping paper is made up of paper, the best way to test it would be to crush it into a ball. If it stays scrunched up, then it’s like to be made of paper. If the paper doesn’t have any glitter, embellishments or decorations, then it can definitely be recycled.
Yes, most kinds of cardboard can be recycled. These include cardboard boxes, cardboard cartons, cardboard tubes, paper board and any other cardboard that doesn’t have food stains on it.
Yes, most coloured paper other than very brightly coloured or dark coloured paper can be recycled. A simple way to check if a piece of coloured paper can be recycled is to tear it up - if it is white in the middle, then it can be recycled.
No, tissue paper is made from paper that has already been recycled so the fibers in tissue paper are too short to be recycled again. The same principle applies to similar products such as tissues, hand towels, kitchen rolls and toilet rolls.
Yes, crumpled paper can be recycled as part of the same process as recycling paper.
Yes, as the ink is removed during the recycling process. The paper pulp is put into a chemical solution and blasted with air bubbles. The ink sticks to these bubbles and rises to the top of the solution. It's then skimmed off.
No, it is difficult to recycle wet paper or cardboard because it breaks down rapidly, causing the fibres to become shorter and harder to recycle. Further, wet cardboard and paper can cause clogs in recycling machinery.
Our paper isn't white; it's a natural shade. We didn’t add any bleaching chemicals to attain the whiteness. This prevents water pollution.
Yes, a normal sharpener will work. We can guarantee a smooth experience.
We can assure you that this paper is printer friendly and can be used on any printer; your printer will not be damaged.
The term “gsm” stands for “grams per square meter.” For this standard, the weight of various types of paper is measured from a sample sheet cut to one square meter in size. For example, paper with a weight of 55 gsm will be much lighter and thinner than paper weighing 400 gsm.
The biggest challenge faced by the recycled paper industry is to increase the quantity of recovered paper available to use in our paper mills and to increase the quality of recovered paper.
Every time a piece of paper is recycled, the process shortens the fibres present in the paper. After being recycled seven times, the fibres in paper become too short to be able to bond into a new sheet of paper. This is where the phrase “paper has seven generations” finds its origin.
Paper mills that process recycled paper have facilities to remove the most common contaminants such as paper clips and staples from paper pulp. Therefore, it’s not necessary to remove these small items before recycling, although paper clips and binder clips can be removed and reused. Any mill that is able to process mixed paper is also usually able to remove the most common kinds of adhesives and glue.
Any paper lined with foil, plastic or any other material cannot be recycled. Wax paper, stickers, solid tableware, laminated and carbon paper cannot be recycled either since they contain impurities that hard the recycling process.
The manufacturing process of recycled paper uses up 77% less electricity than the manufacturing process of conventional paper, per tonne of paper produced.
Every tonne of recycled paper manufactured saves 17 trees when compared to the raw materials that would be used to produce conventional paper.
The Indian recycling industry needs nearly 14 million tonnes of waste paper per year to meet existing demand and this number is only set to grow in the near future. Currently, domestic recycled is only able to meet 30% of the demand and recycling levels in India are only half of the global average. Therefore, the demand for the importing of waste paper is likely to remain strong.
77% of all the paper used in offices is fit for recycling
Paper and its associated waste products take up around 40% of the space in landfills. Recycling this paper can help save on landfill space that can be devoted to other kinds of waste that cannot be actively recycled or reused.
The manufacturing process of recycled paper only creates 5% of the pollution that is typically produced by the manufacture of conventional paper.
Greaseproof paper is coated with silicone, making it impossible to recycle with conventional paper. Used greaseproof paper also has shown a tendency to absorb food waste, which further hampers its ability to be recycled.
Yes, brown paper can be recycled just like other forms of conventional paper.
Yes, brown paper bags can be recycled, as long as they are not contaminated with food or other organic waste. If the bag has a glossy or plastic coating, then it definitely cannot be recycled.
Yes, thermal paper can be recycled just like other forms of paper. Thermal paper is used to to print the receipts in credit and debit card machines, cash registers and other similar devices. If the thermal paper is coated with BPA, then it cannot be recycled along with other kinds of paper.
No, wax paper cannot be recycled. Since the wax coating is water-resistant, it prevents the paper from being broken down by the recycling process.
Paper with paint on it cannot be recycled. The same applies for other art supplies like crayons, glitter, glue, stickers, foam and thermocol.Fun fact: once paper has been wet, the paper fibres undergo damage and cannot be recycled from that point onwards.
Yes, printer paper is completely recyclable and can be turned into new printer paper that can be used for the same purpose again.
Yes, shiny paper like glossy magazines, flyers and leaflets can be recycled. However, you can’t recycle wrapping paper and decorative paper.
No, it is difficult recycle laminated paper because it is almost impossible to separate the paper from the laminated plastic without damaging it. If laminated paper ends up at a recycling mill, it can also contaminate the rest of the recycled paper.
