Post-Consumer waste vs Pre-consumer waste
Post-consumer waste: It is a material discarded after someone uses it. Post-consumer waste has served its intended purpose, passed through the hands of a final consumer, and has been discarded for disposal or recovery, e.g. read newspaper
Pre-consumer waste: It is a material that was discarded before it was ready for consumer use. It is the reintroduction of manufacturing scrap (such as trimmings from paper production, defective aluminum cans, etc.) back into the manufacturing process.
