What types of paper can be recycled?

Recycled fibres can be divided into four groups:

  • Damaged paper e.g. transportation damaged paper that has never been used, or paper that was already scrapped at the mill.
  • Scrap trimmings, end rolls and unprinted discarded paper from printing plants and converters.
  • Office paper, computer reams, books and higher-quality printed materials.
  • Newspapers, magazines and catalogues as well as paper recycled from households.
