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 near Manchester; Smurfit Kappa with a plant in Birmingham and in Kent; and northern mills including Sonoco. Tissue mills use recovered paper although some also use virgin pulp to produce tissue. The main source of material for this sector is from office waste paper, known as the mid-grades. There are several mills in this sector including Kimberly Clark and others such as Disley.
