  • You can buy recycled toilet paper.

    It is not made from used toilet paper. It is made from like... used -newspaper-

  • How can used toilet paper that has been flushed down the toilet in water be recycled?

    Yes some toilet paper is made using recycled resources but not toilet paper.

    And I don't know what toilet paper you are using that smells like urine but mine smells like toilet paper.

  • No, it is not recycled, at least not in the sense you're thinking. Coming from a major paper manufacturing area, I can tell you that the process of making paper is based on using enzymes to digest and break down wood cellulose; it stinks something awful but makes great paper. But trust me when I tell you, it's not recycled from *that*.

  • Have you ever been by a paper mill? The paper making process, I am talking fresh paper from logs, stinks. Like a cross between urine and cabbage. Paper companies infuse perfumes into paper to try and cover it...

      No i haven't, so you're saying its just the natural smell of paper and not urine?

    • 2mo

      Yes. It is the paper making process that gives it that smell.

      Ohhhhhh ok

  • Presuming if they do recycle it, the paper making process itself involves fire and decontamination - so nothing's left anyway.

  • It can be made from recycled paper but I think once it goes down toilet it stays down

  • It only smells like urine in public restrooms or if you have to share your bathroom with a boy. A completely FRESH roll smells nothing like urine.
