The category covers all printing and photocopying paper not carrying a recycling fee. Also white cut-offs printing shops and the like. Staples and smaller springs may be included.
Confidential material is not accepted specifically for destruction, but documents and shredded documents may be included with mixed paper or office paper. Foreign material, such as plastic, should be removed, as they would decrease the recycling value of the material.
What happens to the material?
The material is compressed and baled at the receiving and sorting plant of SORPA at Gufunes in order to reduce its volume. It is then
transported to Sweden for further sorting and recycling.
Recycled paper is used to make e.g. toilet paper, kitchen towels and newspaper paper.
Confidential documents can be conferred to accredited receivers who specialise in data destruction.
