In pictures: Recycling in Barnet
Newsprint factory

The paper is sent off about 60 miles around the M25 to Aylesford Newsprint in Kent.

This is a large 60-acre site which takes in about 90 lorry-loads of paper a day and produces more than 400,000 tonnes of newsprint a year.

The paper is in very basic terms - mixed with hot water, de-inked with soap and tumbled into separate fibres.

It is then put through pressers which turn it into more paper.
