Paper and card recycling

Balers are used to compact the paper and cardboard, either on customer site or by Cawleys, making it easier to store onsite and transport.

Once the waste is collected by Cawleys it is then sent to a reprocessing centre where it is sorted, graded and delivered to a paper mill to be reincarnated (recycled) into new paper products.

At the paper mill the waste paper is added to water and then turned into pulp. The paper is then screened, cleaned and de-inked through a number of processes until it is suitable for papermaking. This is the process of paper and card recycling which enables your waste resources to be made into new paper products such as newsprint, cardboard, packaging, tissue and office items.
