Not surprisingly, the most extreme supporters of recycling paper used to collect the old recycleable newspaper. These metal bins were most " unfriendly", perhaps due to fear of mixing paper with other waste. The opening was very narrow in order to prevent collection of objects other than paper.

People are gradually understanding that saving quality environment actually means preserving quality of life for the future generation. Printing facilities in Israel are no different.
