Industrial Paper Recycling
What happens to the paper you put out for recycling at home and at school?
This short video is designed for KS2 pupils and shows the main stages in the industrial paper recycling process. If you are making your own recycled paper, watch it in conjunction with ‘Home Paper making ’, so that pupils can see the similarities between the industrial process and the way we make recycled paper at home and school.
