THE PROFITABLE USE OF WASTE PAPER

91

It is obvious that there are lots of opportunities in the recycling industry. Among the many uses of waste materials is the manufacturing of tissue papers for home use. The recycling of waste paper has a number of important benefits. This process saves waste paper from occupying home and offices. Due to the fiber that is originally absorb from the tree from which it is produced. In the United States, around two third of all paper product are now recovered and recycled.

This medium entails the mixing of used or old papers with water and chemicals to break it down. Nigeria recycling system is not left out. There are lots of companies in Nigeria that are solely into the recycling of waste papers. It could be obvious that because of the myopic sense of our citizens as it regards the recycling industry, we are still uninformed of the recycling business. The medium to gather these papers is also a challenge and as such it is only the scavengers who are aware of this. They move from homes to offices and to the city refuge dump sites in search of papers.The papers are kept and protected from rain until dealers or recycling companies come for it.

The papers are not just sourced and sent for production. The material is in most cases categorized into grades in order to achieve desired production purposes. These grading ranges from pure white (plain white) documents (written papers), calendar (with pictures) and carbonated paper (colored). As this grade differs is how their prices differ as well. The prices of these papers normally appreciate during the dry season but depreciate during the raining days due to the wetness of these papers.

Aside the Lagos state government, the Nigerian has done little or nothing in fostering the activities of the recycling industry. The continuous increase in price of foreign made tissue production materials calls for a critical review of proper harnessing of waste papers. This does not only improve the business in general but will as well create employment and contribute to the gross domestic product (GDP).
The technological innovation of the 21st century did not overlook the recycling industry. If there could be proper sensitization on the proper disposal of waste which does not only rid our environment of waste but also contribute to our financial well being.
