Recycled paper is made from post-consumer waste paper, such as old newspapers, cardboard, and office paper that have been collected, processed, and remanufactured into new paper products.

The waste paper is first collected and then sorted into different grades and types. It is then cleaned, shredded, and mixed with water to create a pulp.

The pulp is then formed into sheets and pressed to remove excess water. The sheets are then dried and cut into the desired size.

Some recycled paper may also include additional fibers such as kenaf, hemp or straw.
