Not recyclable:

1. Daily Chemicals

Toilet paper, napkins, diapers, food packaging paper (boxes) immersed in oil stains, etc.

2. Printing

Photos, postcards, carbon paper, receipts, memo paper, etc.

3. Packaging

Aluminum foil paper (such as chewing gum wrapping paper), cellophane (such as candy paper, some wrapping paper), etc.

4. Disposable

Such as paper cups, beverage cups (such as milk teacups, coffee cups), instant noodle cups, etc.

These are not renewable.

Toilet paper and napkins are too water-soluble, so they cannot be recycled

Paper cups and beverage cups are not recyclable because a plastic film is attached to their surfaces (to prevent water penetration), which is not easy to separate from paper during the recycling process.

Photos, postcards, carbon paper, receipts, memo paper, etc. are not recyclable because of their complex composition, and foreign objects cannot be fully eliminated during recycling.

How to "transform" after paper recycling?

The waste paper is mixed with water in the beater to form a sticky pulp. Inject air into the pulp so that the ink in the pulp adheres to the air bubbles and then floats on the surface of the pulp, which facilitates the discharge of the ink in the pulp.

Subsequently, the moisture in the pulp is discharged using a pressing machine, and the pulp is cut using a screw conveyor, and then the pulp is bleached with a decolorizer containing peroxide, and the pulp is rinsed in clean water, and finally, the chemical is added to the pulp Wet strength agent to shape the pulp into paper.
