The Paper Trail
The paper we collect has quite a journey! See in action!
Watch Urban Impact’s new video and see in action the five step paper processing process
Following a School Tour of Urban Impact’s Richmond processing plant, here’s how the Grade 4/5 students of McCloskey Elementary School in Richmond described our recycling process:
“We saw first hand the 5 stages of the operation. First, paper is COLLECTED from various businesses and schools from the Lower Mainland. Second, it is RECEIVED by type. Third, it is SORTED. Fourth, it is BALED into 1 tonne blocks. Lastly, it is SHIPPED either to the local manufacturing market or shipped overseas as far away as Brazil, Korea, India and China.”
