When you need large quantities of paper, just thinking about the vast quantities produced,
consumed and ...thrown away by the printing-publishing industry can make you green with envy.
These professionals already supply industrial paper recycling channels, but not all waste paper is recycled.
Part of what is left over is sold on the "seconds" market at a very low cost, and yet another part is simply thrown away.
During the binding process, small printing houses always produce waste:
the blank margins of printed sheets. These margins, often made of very high quality paper,
are cut off and can be used as scrap paper, to make little notebooks or as the base for "luxury" paper-mache.
Printing houses equipped with reel-fed presses to produce newspapers and magazines use massive webs of paper.
As it is technically impossible to print right up to the end of the web, there is always lots of leftover paper,
which is either thrown away or sold at a very low cost.
It is worthwhile to contact your local or regional printer for information about their recycling practices.
You can make all sorts of objects with recycled paper, using different techniques such as paper-mache, paper collage, origami or marouflage.
Paper can also be recycled into ecological construction materials such as papercrete bricks or insulation.
