Exporting Paper For Recycling

DS Smith Recycling is one of Europe’s leading paper and cardboard recyclers, managing over 5.5 million tonnes of material for recycling every year. We supply the majority into our own network of European paper mills, and we also supply into a trusted network of partner mills around the world.

Unlike traders and the traditional waste management companies, we too make finished paper products from recycled paper, and the fibre that we export meets our own stringent standards for papermaking.

DS Smith as a paper for recycling supplier

We’re trusted to supply quality materials for export because we are a papermaking company. The Recycling Division’s extensive quality management systems ensure that we’re able to supply our own recovered fibre mills with high quality paper for recycling – and we meet our own stringent quality targets whenever we prepare material for export to the global recycling market.  

We know that paper and cardboard for recycling is a feedstock, and that like any manufacturing process, papermaking requires a steady supply of quality inputs – because we’ve been supplying quality paper for recycling to global markets for years.

Quality is at the heart of our business model, and we source a large quantity of our paper grades through our own recycling facilities, which gives us a high level of control over the quality of the paper for recycling we process

DS Smith’s breadth of industry expertise ensures that we can source, grade, and supply a full range of paper grades, including OCC, tissue grades, newsprint, and high and speciality grades, to a wide range of end user paper mills.

Export with DS Smith

DS Smith is a centre of excellence for export. Our PfR export teams manage materials to our own network of 14 European paper mills, as well as trade to other European partners, and deep-sea exports to Asia, among other markets. This variety of end markets means that we’re confident that we can find a sustainable, traceable end destination for your paper grades.

Our teams can fully support with the export documentation process, ensuring that exports are compliant with international legislation, and we can provide customers with a full audit trail detailing the final destination of their materials.
