Paper Recycling




The recycling of paper is the process by which waste paper is turned into new paper products. It has a number of important benefits besides saving trees from being cut down. It is less energy and water intensive than paper made from wood pulp. It saves waste paper from occupying landfills and producing methane as it breaks down.

The process of waste paper recycling most often involves mixing used/old paper with water and chemicals to break it down. It is then chopped up and heated, which breaks it down further into strands of cellulose, a type of organic plant material; this resulting mixture is called pulp, or slurry. It is strained through screens, which remove any glue or plastic that may still be in the mixture; then cleaned, de-inked, bleached, and mixed with water. Then it can be made into new recycled paper.

In Jyoti Nivas College paper recycling was conceived to instill in students a concern for the environment in which they live. As academicians we understand the need to go beyond facts and figures, and to translate this knowledge into action. Thus the recycling plant was commissioned. We do not stop at making paper. We believe that our students can take the recycled paper further. The finished product can enable them to plunge into a number of entrepreneurial ventures. Concern for environment, entrepreneurship, and empowerment of women are the milestones we aspire to reach through this project. Awareness has increased to save paper.

Students are conscious not to waste paper. They are judicious in using paper. They take effort and promote recycled paper. Students have been trained by professionals. Workshops are conducted to convert recycled paper into products like, files and folders, envelopes, paper bags and books.Students use only recycled paper for making posters, invitations and mementos for all academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

The programme, which was started for the Social Science students, within a short span of two years has enveloped the entire college. 'PAPER RECYCLING' is one of the best practices of the college. Students of all streams are part of the recycling project.
