News and Pams

Separated News & Pams go to mills in Belgium and Norway. The process is very similar to that of the mixed paper/OCC described above:

  • Bales of News & Pams are put into an articulated lorry at the MRF in Smugglers Way and taken to the facility.
  • Bales are off-loaded and visually inspected for high levels of contaminants.
  • The material is shredded, cleaned, pulped and de-inked, with a whisk-like machine pulling any remaining contaminants out.
  • The pulp is then dried and rolled to make sheets which are then used to make new newspapers.
