The good news is that as more environmentally friendly products are becoming available, prices are now more competitive than ever compared with less sustainable options. Being environmentally friendly doesn’t need to cost the earth and we have made it a whole easier for you to recognise these products in our catalogue.

Closed Loop Recycling Service

In the UK alone over six million tonnes of paper and board is once only and not recycled following disposal*. What’s more, good quality waste paper is often recycled into one time use products such as wallpaper or tissue, which means it is no longer in the recycling loop. Our Closed Loop process ensures that the recycled copier paper we produce from your waste can itself be recycled back into a new product up to six times.

As well as delivering sustainability benefits, the Closed Loop process is helping to promote the growth of the UK recycled paper market. It provides more of the much needed raw material to manufacture recycled paper and creates demand for the finished recycled product

 

If your waste paper is confidential, we ensure that it is shredded securely. We provide a Certificate of Destruction to confirm your compliance under the Data Protection Act.

The UK waste material is baled and transported to a specialist mill partner to be turned into pulp. The pulp is washed to remove any contamination then pressed, dried and finally manufactured into Banner 100% Recycled Copier Paper.

Any pulp that cannot be recycled into copier paper is used to produce other products such as fertiliser
