* PAPER AND BOARD PACKAGING RECYCLABILITY GUIDELINES
Paper is a sustainable, renewable and ecologically sound choice for packaging because almost all paper and board is recyclable. In practice, the recyclability of packaging products will be determined by composition and design, and the way they are collected and presented for reprocessing. The vast majority of paper- based products are easily recyclable.
Paper recycling in the UK is a success story, with over 80% of paper and board packaging recovered for recycling. Paper for Recycling (PfR) is collected primarily for use in manufacturing processes and is used as an alternative to virgin materials e.g. wood pulp. When presented it should therefore be of adequate quality and economically viable to use.
*The Confederation of Paper Industries in conjunction with WRAP has launched a new design guidance document “Our Paper” to encourage better recycling of paper and board. CLICK HERE to download the Paper and Board Packaging Recyclability Guidelines.
