Paper Waste

Paper Waste Recycling

Paper recycling saves forests by reducing logging. The need for trees is reduced by using recycled paper instead of cutting down trees used for new paper production. This contributes to the protection of habitats and biodiversity. Paper production is a process that requires a large amount of energy. By using recycled paper, energy is saved instead of new paper production.

In the recycling process, less energy is used for the production and processing of raw materials. Recycling of paper waste reduces environmental pollution. When waste paper is stored or incinerated in landfills or combustion plants, harmful gases and pollutants are released. Environmental pollution is reduced by ensuring the correct processing of wastes with recycling. By using recycled paper, water consumption is reduced instead of producing new paper. In the recycling process, the amount of water used is less and in some cases the recovered water can be reused. It also creates new job opportunities for the operation of recycling plants. The recycling industry contributes to economic growth by creating employment. In summary, paper waste recycling is an important step for a sustainable future by conserving natural resources, saving energy, reducing environmental pollution, reducing water consumption, creating job opportunities and reducing carbon footprint. As individuals, businesses and societies, it is important to properly sort paper waste for recycling and contribute to the recycling process.


The first stage is the collection of paper waste. At this stage, separate collection containers or recycling bins are used by homes, businesses, schools and other institutions. Waste paper is collected separately to reach recycling facilities.

Separation & Classification

The collected paper wastes are brought to the recycling facilities and the separation process is done there. At this stage, different types of paper waste are separated from each other. For example, newspapers form a separate group, while cardboard boxes are collected in a separate group.

Dough Production

The extracted paper wastes are turned into pulp by grinding or shredding. This pulp is mixed by adding water and the paper fibers are released.

Shaping and Drying

The dough is brought to the desired thickness and size by special forming machines or casting methods. Then, the papers are subjected to the drying process. Moisture is evaporated using heat and air circulation.

New Paper Production

The dried papers are packaged in rolls to be used for new paper production. These rolls are sent to factories that produce paper products.
