Waste Paper Inspection

In today’s environmental climate, recycling paper has become a valuable commodity. As the world becomes more environmentally conscious, there is an increasing demand in recyclable goods, particularly paper.

paperwaste

Our dedicated team of waste paper experts at CWM Survey & Inspection not only have years of experience behind them, but they also come from a solid background in the waste paper industry. Thanks to our specialised inspection services, recyclable waste paper has become one of our core competencies at CWM Survey & Inspection.

Waste paper inspections can vary depending on your specific needs. Our process can include overall visual determination if the grading meets the standard, or more thorough inspection processes, such as a report on cleanness, contaminants, foreign objects, moisture content and so on.

At present, we are the only inspection agency in Europe that has been officially appointed by the Republic of Indonesia to carry out pre-shipment inspections on non-hazardous and non-toxic waste paper being shipped into Indonesia.

These are not discoloured by the sun and do not retain more than the normal percentage of coloured rectors and rotogravure.

“Over-Issue News” is comprised of unused, overrun newspapers that are bundled together for paper recycling. OI and OIN do not contain more than the normal percentage of rotogravure and coloured sections.

OMG

Magazines used in paper recycling usually consist of coated, glossy magazines, catalogues and other similar print materials. Occasionally these will contain a small amount of uncoated news-type paper.

OCC

This term refers to “Old Corrugated Containers” that are often used in paper recycling and usually have jute, kraft or test liners.

DLK

“New Double-Lined Kraft” materials stand for corrugated cuttings with kraft, Jute or test liners in paper recycling. Treated liners or medium, slabbed or hogged medium, insoluble adhesives and butt roles are unacceptable materials in this category.

KGB

New brown kraft bag cuttings, misprinted bags and sheets make up the grocery bag scrap in paper recycling.

WBN

Unprinted cuttings, sheets of white newsprint or uncoated, white groundwood paper comprise the “White Blank News” category in paper recycling.

GWCPO

Groundwood papers usually used in data-processing machines are categorised as “Groundwood Computer Printout” scrap paper. This may include paper with coloured stripes and impact or nonimpact printing, such as paper used in laser computer printing.

CPB

Under the category of Publication Blanks in a recycling context, these are made up of groundwood content paper, unprinted cuttings or even sheets of white-coated paper.

SWS

For recycling purposes, “Soft White Shavings” are made up of unprinted coated and uncoated shavings, which include sheets of white groundwood-free print paper material.

HWS

“Hard White Shavings” in recycling consider shavings, unprinted or untreated white sheets of paper that do not contain any groundwood.

HWEC

“Hard White Envelope Cuttings” comprise sheets of uncoated, untreated and unprinted envelope paper or shavings that are free from groundwood for recycling purposes.

UOP

Recycling from an office, such as unprinted or even printed-paper material, is often categorised as “Unsorted Office Paper”. This could include document-destruction, manila and pastel folders, along side coloured, white, coated or uncoated paper.

SOP

In the case when “Sorted Office Paper” is used in recycling, this refers to the paper generated by offices that are mostly white or coloured, but free from unbleached fibre and groundwood. Although, it is possible for the paper to contain a small quantity of groundwood computer and fax paper materials.

MCL

The “Manifold Coloured Ledger” used in recycling is made up of shavings, cuttings and sheets of industrial-generated, groundwood-free paper. It is can either be printed or unprinted, as well as coloured or white. In this category, the stock must be uncoated or free from non-impact printing, although a small percentage of carbonless paper is allowed.

CPO

“Computer Printout” is used for the classification of white paper free from groundwood that is used in data processing equipment in recycling. CPO paper may contain impact and non-impact computer printing, and even coloured stripes. However, it must not contain any more than 5% groundwood nor should the stock be coated or treated.

CBS

“Coated Book Stock” in a recycling context refers coated, printed or unprinted shavings, cuttings, sheets and books. Often, it is groundwood-free, however a reasonable percentage may be included if the paper contains fine groundwood.
