After paper is collected for recycling and taken to a recycling center (or Material Recovery Facility), it is sorted into different grades and contaminants are removed. It is then compacted into bales and taken to a paper mill. At the paper mill, the recovered fiber is shredded and mixed with water to make a pulp. The pulp is washed, refined and cleaned, then turned to slush in a beater. The process of papermaking from that point forward is essentially the same whether or not recovered fiber is used.
An additional process called De-inking (removal of ink)is used in recycling of written and/or printed paper. After de-inking same grade of paper can be made from recycled fiber e.g. newsprint can be made from recycled printed newspaper.
