Did You Know?
Recovered paper (used paper) and cardboard is the most important raw material for the UK paper and board industry. It represents over 70% of the fibre used to manufacture paper and board in the UK in 2013 (nearly 8 million tonnes of paper and cardboard products).
The paper industry is the UK’s most successful recycler.
There are limits on recovery – paper and cardboard is lost when used for permanent records eg, books, wallpaper etc, destroyed in use or contaminated. Paper also cannot be recycled indefinitely as the fibres become too weak, so virgin fibres need to be introduced into the papermaking process.
