The Netherlands is the front runner in Europe when it comes to recycling. In recent years there has been much investment in the recycling of paper, cardboard, plastics, rubber products, building and demolition waste, organic waste etc. Used paper and cardboard are typical examples of cradle-to-cradle (C2C) recycling. Used paper is far and away the most important material in the production of new paper and cardboard in the Netherlands. Of all fibrous raw materials in 2010, 75% consisted of used paper and 25% of fresh wood fibres. Paper can be recycled 6 or 7 times until the basic paper fibres are worn out.
