Mixed paper accounts for at least 40% of the residential curbside recycling stream, according to research from The Recycling Partnership, and is often an even higher percentage of the volume processed at some materials recovery facilities (MRFs).
It consists of a clean, sorted mixture of various qualities of paper containing less than 10% of groundwood content.
Prohibitive Materials : ≤ 1/2 of 1%
Total Outthrows : ≤ 3%
Mixed Paper which (in many times) ends up in the trash bin can be recycled for 6-7 times until it becomes degraded. It can be reprocessed to make a new paper, book cover, box, packaging, and other new pulp products.
