More than 80 percent of all paper mills in the US use recovered fiber. Recovered fiber comprises almost 40 percent of all fiber used in US mills. Generators, haulers, processors, and mills each play a vital role in ensuring a steady supply of high quality recovered paper. Because recovered paper is a raw material, that material must meet quality specifications.

The resources below can help haulers, processors, and mills educate their customers about paper recycling:
