    Paper can be collected at curbside recycling programs, drop off centers, schools, and offices. After collection, it is transferred to a Material Recovery Facility (MRF). Here, contaminants such as glass and metal are removed. Then, it is transported to a paper mill and the recycling process begins. The paper is shredded and mixed with water to make pulp. The pulp is washed, refined, and cleaned, then turned to slush. The slush is then laid out, compressed, and turned into paper. The paper is then distributed to different companies. Paper can be recycled up to seven times. It can only be recycled around seven times because the length of the pulp gets shorter each time it is recycled.
