RECYCLED PAPERS WHAT CONSTITUTES RECYCLED PAPER?
Few papers are made from 100 percent recycled materials. Most recycled paper is a combination of recovered and virgin pulp. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set forth official standards as to what Qualifies as recycled paper. THERE ARE TWO CATEGORIES OF RECOVERED WASTE PAPER:
Pre-consumer waste paper is dry paper and paperboard waste generated after completion 0 the paper making process, but before its use by the consumer. It includes envelope cuttings, bindery trimmings, and other paper and paperboard waste resulting from printing, cutting, forming, and other converting operations. Unused stock and obsolete inventories from merchants, printers, converters, etc. are also considered pre-consumer by the EPA. It does not include mill trimmings. Post-consumer waste paper is paper, paperboard, and fibrous waste from retail stores, office buildings, homes, etc. after it has passed through its end usage as a consumer item. It includes used corrugated boxes, newspapers, magazines, books, computer printouts, and many other sources. This material is usually printed, and often glued or coated.
