UK mills

In the UK the three main types of mills are those producing tissue products, cardboard and newsprint. There are three newsprint mills: Aylesford Newsprint in Kent, Palm Paper in Norfolk and UPM in north Wales. All use 100% recycled fibre, mainly newspapers and magazines. The cardboard sector includes: DS Smith with mills including Kemsley in Kent, SAICA at Partington; Smurfit Kappa with a plant in Birmingham and in Kent; and northern mills including Sonoco.

Tissue mills use recovered paper and/or virgin pulp to produce tissue. The main source of recycled material for this sector is office waste paper. Mills in this sector include Kimberly Clark and Disley.
