Perhaps six, but it never really happens that way. Recycled paper pulp is usually mixed with some virgin wood fibers, to hold it all together. Some industry sources estimate that an ordinary sheet of paper made from cellulose fibers derived from wood can survive only four to six trips through the recycling process.
