Paper recycling is the process of recovering waste paper and remaking it into new paper products. There are three categories of paper that can be used as feed-stocks for making recycled paper: mill broke, pre-consumer waste, and post-consumer waste. Mill broke is paper trimmings and other paper scrap from the manufacture of paper, and is recycled internally in a Paper Mill. Pre-consumer waste is material which left the paper mill, which has been discarded before it was ready for consumer use. Post-consumer waste is material discarded after consumer use, such as old magazines, old newspapers, office waste, old telephone directories, and residential mixed paper. Paper suitable for recycling is called “scrap paper”.
