Paper is collected by J&B either from commercial sources or local recycling bringbank sites, or is recovered by J&B from mixed recyclables, general waste etc from local authority or commercial sources. We grade the paper into different qualities which are then sent to paper mills for recycling. The quality of paper produced through our recycled paper is comparable to that made from virgin raw material. Each time paper is recycled however, the fibres get shorter so unlike other materials it cannot be recycled forever. In the UK we can make several uses of the fibres before they are no longer suitable for recycling for example all of the newsprint manufactured here in the UK is now made from 100% recycled paper and UK tissue mills use around half million tonnes per year of high grade recycled paper.
