Although paper is made from renewable resources, it should not be regarded as waste, but as a raw material. Today, through the development of improved processes, more and more fibers from waste paper can be used to make new paper. Likewise, waste paper fibers can be recycled several times. Recycling waste paper not only makes ecological sense, but is also important for the economy. Without recovered paper, the Swiss paper industry would be missing an important share of cheap raw material. Switzerland currently has a very good collection rate of over 81%; these results should be maintained and improved as much as possible.
Recycling usually fails because of a badly placed or missing container. Especially in the office it makes sense to place a waste paper container in the immediate vicinity of workplaces. This way, your employees can dispose of the paper directly, easily and correctly. But bins for waste paper also make sense in the household. In this way, you prevent paper from ending up in the trash can, and with the waste paper container, you also make it easier to collect and bind the waste paper.
What belongs in the paper collection?
When separating waste, the following items can be disposed of in the waste paper:
- Paper envelopes (also with windows)
- Transparent paper
- Books (only content pages - no covers - paperbacks can be completely disposed of in the waste paper)
What does not belong in the paper collection?
When separating waste, the following items do not belong in the waste paper:
- Baking paper
- Sanitary paper
- Coated paper
- Photo books
- Butcher paper
- Coated paper
Where to dispose of waste paper?
Depending on the municipality or city, paper can be disposed of together with cardboard. In most disposal facilities, however, paper should be disposed of separately. In some communities, Waste Management collects waste paper directly from your front door. Detailed information can be found in the regional waste calendars.
