Figures for the production of paper are provided by the Confederation of Paper Industries. They cover all paper production from UK mills, not just those using UK roundwood. Most UK paper production uses recovered waste paper or imported pulp.
A total of 3.9 million tonnes of paper and paperboard was produced in the UK in 2018, an increase of 1% from the previous year. Packaging materials accounted for 49% of the total UK paper production in 2018, graphic papers (including newsprint) for 25%, and sanitary and household papers for 19%.
