The paper recycling process generally shreds paper in to fine pieces and adds water to the paper, creating a slurry mixture. The slurry is then applied to a screen-like surface and is mechanically dried to make new paper products.


Paper RecyclingThe paper recycling process is a highly mechanical one. Each time a piece of paper gets recycled, the fibers (remember paper comes from tree fibers) are somewhat broken down. High grade office paper can be recycled into new copy and printer paper and works very reliably in today’s office machines. As this paper goes through the recycling process repeatedly, it may become newspaper and magazine stock. Newspaper can be deinked and recycled into new newspaper stock which eventually can become bathroom tissue and paper towels, after which it is no longer recyclable, but can be composted.
