Image Concepts, like other large printing facilities, generates tons of paper waste, or scrap paper, each year. Printer's waste comes in two forms: printed (post-consumer) or unprinted (pre-consumer). The waste we collect at Image Concepts comes from trimmings (also called guillotine waste), overprinting, and rejected printing projects.
After you recycle your magazines and newspapers, the ink, filler and coatings must be removed before it is recycled into useable paper. This is called de-inked consumer waste. As you can imagine, using non-toxic inks is valuable in the recycling process as well as the printing process.
