This concept refers to material resources that can be reused when it comes to secondary raw materials. Such raw materials are the main object of the waste paper collection business. As a rule, it is a waste of consumption or production. They are produced in large quantities by various enterprises. But you need to understand that not every piece of garbage can be recycled. At the same time, not every secondary raw material is a used product. There is a classification of secondary raw materials. It is clear enough and easy to understand. It is conventionally customary to divide such a product into several groups:

1. Secondary raw materials can be used for full or partial replacement of primary raw materials.
2. Waste that is used as an initial product for the manufacture of primary raw materials.
3. Waste in the form of used products that can enter the recycling process and then can be used in a new technological cycle.
4. Waste that serves as a source for specialised raw materials and the extraction of various metals.

Waste paper is a common type of secondary raw material. It includes old newspapers, notebooks, as well as books, magazines, and various office paper that has already been in use. Also included are cardboard boxes and various packaging. All this is called waste paper. Paper waste, which falls under the concept of secondary raw materials, is used for the production of various materials. It can be insulating products, some materials for roofs, roofs, or packaging. Waste paper is also used to make paper. It is important to pay attention to the fact that waste paper occupies 40% of raw materials in the production of paper. Why is this happening? Because pulp and wood are very expensive materials in the papermaking business.

What are the types of waste paper?

Different regions of the world have their own catalogues of varieties. In particular, in North America, it is customary to use the ISRI catalogue. It contains all varieties that are in demand by North American enterprises. Each variety is described in detail; that is, it has its own description and a specific specification. The specification indicates certain requirements, for example, what composition of the impurity may be present in a particular grade of waste paper. If you need, for example, to sell or buy over issued newspaper, then information about this variety can be obtained by looking at the ISRI catalogue.

It is important to note that waste paper is a fairly valuable product. If it is formed in large quantities at enterprises, then it is worth considering how to sell it. The situation on the market is such that it is quite difficult to sell the waste paper on your own, so it is better to use the help of a waste broker. He will buy paper waste and find a consumer. The owner of an enterprise that has generated paper waste does not need to think about how to contact such a consumer since the broker will solve all related issues. This is a very convenient type of cooperation, which allows you to get rid of the paper waste and get quite good money.
