Why do they need to be sorted?

Recycling one ton of newsprint saves about 1 ton of wood while recycling 1 ton of printing or copy paper saves slightly more than 2 tons of wood. Paper recycling causes 35% less water pollution and 74% less air pollution than making virgin paper.

How is it recycled?

The process of waste paper recycling most often involves mixing used/old paper with water and chemicals to break it down. It is then chopped up and heated, cleaned, de-inked, bleached, and mixed with water. Then it can be made into new recycled paper.
