How to dispose of waste-paper in Paderborn
In every household, on each estate and in your company, there can be a large amount of old paper, like newspapers, magazines, catalogues, old books and all kind of wrapping papers and plenty of cardboard. This material is a valuable resource and can easily be recycled. The process of waste-paper-recycling begins with the special collection in the Paperbin, next is the process of sorting the different paper and cardboard qualities, and a recycling operation in which the paper and cardboard is completely dissolved in the water of several paper-mills, where recycled paper and cardboard is made from it. The recycling of waste-paper is a world-wide-market, because many of the packaging from exporting countries is made from recycled paper and cardboard, which have their origin in waste-paper from Germany.
This world-wide proceeding starts with your collection of
• magazines, catalogues, telephone-books
• old books, paper books
• wrapping paper
• cardboard in the Paperbin,
that is the one with the blue lid.
In some areas in Paderborn (Am Heilandsfrieden, Lahrkampstraße, Uhlandstraße, where are flats) we also collect waste-paper in larger waste-paper-containers, which stand in special compounds with the rubbish-containers.
And there is also the possibility to bring waste-paper free-of-charge to the ASP Recycling-Points at Driburger Straße and An der Talle.
