Where it is taken?

Smiths (Gloucester) Ltd, Smiths Moreton Valance, Gloucester

What happens to it?

At Smiths the paper is baled and sent for recycling at a Paper Mill in Leicestershire. There the paper is added to water and chemicals, put through tiny screens to remove contamination such as staples, bleached and then fed into a paper machine that removes the water and rolls the paper into flat rolls. It is then cut to size and used as recycled paper, or to make cardboard.
