Specializing in paper recycling for mixed paper,
newsprint, envelopes, and other industrial waste
Almost every area of your business generates paper waste. Fortunately, paper recycling is even easier than ever thanks to advanced screening and cleaning techniques that allow you to recycle more and landfill less.
Worried about the stray staple or paper clip? Don’t be. Wondering if you can recycle sticky notes, envelopes, or paper packaging that is contaminated with an adhesive? The answer is typically yes.
Most mills and recycling centers have the ability to screen pulped paper for common contaminants such as staples, tape, and paper clips. They are also able to remove adhesives from mixed paper.
We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution in the industrial recycling market. You need a custom solution based on the types and volume of by-products that your business creates. Our sustainability solutions experts can meet with you to develop a custom recycling program for your company that takes your needs into account and integrates seamlessly with your existing operations. If you have any questions about paper recycling for your business, just contact us.
Have you ever heard that paper has seven generations? That phrase refers to the fact that paper can typically be recycled 5-7 times before its fibers become too short to be reusable on their own. However, even lower grade papers that have been previously recycled, like newsprint, can be mixed with virgin fibers or turned into pulp products.
Even though paper is naturally recyclable, it does break down after a while. The best way to make sure that you get the most for your high grade paper is to collect paper separately. Keeping your paper mix clean and dry means that the fibers will retain their value longer.
When you recycle paper on an industrial scale, your business revenue increases. According to the most recent EPA report, for each ton of paper waste you recycle you are also saving 17 trees, 463 gallons of oil, and 7,000 gallons of water. Way to go!
