What is Paper Waste?
The waste stream of paper consists of all nonfunctional paper thrown away. Regardless of what kind of paper waste your company generates, Mansfield Waste Company can assist in it’s recycling. Paper is made from trees. If we keep using it without recycling, we’ll have to cut more trees to produce more paper, resulting in deforestation. Consumption of paper has increased tremendously over the last 40 years.
Thanks to the efforts of waste management providers, collectors, and customers, the paper recycling business in the United Kingdom is thriving. Separation at the source, however, remains the most important factor influencing paper recycling volumes. To maintain these excellent recycling statistics, consumers and companies must continue to separate their paper-based waste from other materials.
Paper Waste Management Mansfield
With regards to paper waste, landfills pose a serious problem. Paper waste makes up 26% of waste in landfills. In landfills, paper can take up to 15 years to decompose, and when it does, hazardous pollutants are released into the air. In addition to air pollution, soil erosion, and water pollution, this has serious consequences for the environment. If your business generates a substantial amount of paper waste, you must hire a waste management company to dispose of it in an environmentally acceptable manner.
Paper Waste Recycling
Paper waste has a detrimental impact on the environment, but deforestation is by far the biggest issue. A paper’s raw material base is a tree, so trees provide the raw material for paper making. There are about 42 million tonnes of wood harvested each year in the world for use in papers and paper products. Through recycling, we can drastically lower this number, preventing deforestation. One single recycled paper can save as many as 24 trees! In addition, recycling paper consumes much less energy than producing new papers from trees.
Recycling the paper waste generated by your corporation or business is much easier than you would imagine. We make this process even simple for you at Waste business. The waste collection provider arrives at the agreed-upon time, collects the paper waste from your bins, and transports it to recycling plants. If your company generates a lot of paper waste, balers can help you compact it.
The paper will be processed and split into grades and categories at the recycling plant. It will then be washed to eliminate any pollutants such as ink, glue, plastics, staples, and so on.
After that, the pulp is treated, dried, and rolled into paper sheets from which various types of paper are made. Color additives can be used to color papers that need to be colored, while white paper can be bleached or whitened with other chemicals.
In most cases, paper that is not recycled ends up in landfills. In contrast, landfills have demonstrated they are incapable of removing paper waste, or any garbage for that matter. Hazardous elements present in paper waste can seep into the soil and cause a variety of pollutants.
