FOI request (FOIR-195678023)
Brown Kraft Paper/Card Recycling
Requested Tue 14 April 2020
Responded Mon 20 April 2020
I would like to know the trail of used brown kraft paper/card.
Specifically flour sacks from bakeries
What is Hastings Borough Council's procedure/process for these sacks once the bakery has disposed of them?
During its process, what percentage is contaminated? Could you provide me with the council's definition of contaminants?… Ink; grease; wax layer; poly liner; polish; dirt; produce residue; glue; string for example?
What is the procedure for contaminated kraft?
What percentage of contaminated kraft is classified as Out Throws and Prohibitive Materials?
Is contaminated brown kraft paper/card recycled, incinerate, sent to landfill? Is this in the UK or abroad?
Can contaminated brown kraft be recycled? If so what percentage?
What percentage of brown kraft is recycled, incinerated and sent to landfill? Figures for 2019.
Hastings Borough Council (HBC) holds no information in respect of this request.
A bakery would be classed as a trade waste collection, HBC only collects domestic waste.
Our recycling is also not broken down as far as kraft paper - it is only broken down as far as paper and card.
