Recycler launches paper collection guide

Paper recycler Aylesford Newsprint has launched a guide to help local authorities and waste management firms provide top quality recovered paper.

The company, which produces newsprint made entirely from recycled paper, reviewed how it communicated what paper was acceptable for the mill.

As a result of the review, Aylesford has published its Quality Specification Datasheet.

"The UK has a mature but growing paper recycling market, although there is always room for development and improvement," said Aylesford Newsprint commercial manager Chris White.

In an effort to de-mystify the do's and don'ts of paper recycling, the Datasheet explains the condition of paper required, the types of paper that cannot be recycled and the problematic effects that these have on the recycling process and end product.

White added: "We have compiled this Datasheet to provide the information needed by collectors of used newspapers. By working together we can ensure the market's growth continues to reflect both our own commercial and the wider environmental needs."
