cheap paper has little content except wood fibres ,if it is glossy there is a bit of clay (but less than oilshale)

books burn well Wink

allegedly there are 3/4 of a million tons of unwanted books (mostly mills n boon remainders )in the foundations of the birmingham northern relief rd (ms toll) . a combo of scam and green activism can be an investment for the future Cool

Are they such rubbish titles that nobody will pay you anything to read them ? Confused

I use old books to line the animals sheds. As many are the kids' old school books I like to think that I'm providing my animals with a decent education. dpack

with jackets ,boards,photo pages etc they count as mixed paper and jan's wholesale bought prices were 35 to 50 pmt at the mill gate

graded as good condition (ie all the pages) they are about 1200 to1800 for a 20ft shipping container load which is a little bit more but still cheaper per calorie than most fuels
