Ink - Recycling Paper Problem? Not Anymore

Recycling paper has become a standard in many homes and offices. The importance of recycling paper products is immense. In the past, not all paper products could be properly recycled due to the ink that recycling plants could not process. The chemicals from the ink would get into the way of the recycling and gum up the works.

Over the past few decades, ink producers have improved the make-up of their inks to make recycling a reality for any paper product. By changing the chemical mixture in inks and toners, not only can paper products be processed properly, but there are even ink recycling companies and plants. Now, we can recycle the paper that comes out of the printer, as well as the unused ink that never made it to paper.
