PAPERBANKS AND COMMERCIAL COLLECTIONS


Recovered (Waste) paper is collected from Waste Paper Banks and Commercial collections. When you deposit your used papers into a waste paper bank, you are sorting the paper into grades before the merchant collects it. This is why you can only put certain papers into a particular bank.

Many offices have in place an office recycling scheme. Again the recovered paper is usually segregated ready to be collected.

See our fact sheet 'How to Recycle' for more information.
