Paper and cardboard are often disposed of together, even if this depends on where you live – it is therefore advisable to always check the guidelines of your Municipality of residence. Differentiated collection of paper is very simple to do: just separate all the paper produced at home, taking care not to collect laminated paper or tetrapack in the same container.

Why recycle paper?
The recycling of paper and cardboard gives rise to several advantages: from high quality paper (without fouling) you can for example extract the cellulose fibres used in green building. Furthermore, compared with the production of new fibres, the recycling process allows us to save 30% of energy, water and trees – a significant benefit for us and for the environment.
