Van loaded with waste paper from the General Stores at Swindon Works, 1941

Paper salvage was introduced by the Government at the outbreak of war in 1939. It was designed to encourage the recycling of materials to aid the war effort. Paper salvage became compulsory in late 1940 and fines were put in place for companies and authorities not sorting their waste. This image from December 1941 shows a waste paper van coming to collect a large amount of paper from the General Stores at Swindon Works.
