The endurance of the antibacterial properties of compounded papers containing wasted green tea leaves needs to be examined before considering these papers for long-term use. Hence, compounded papers containing 60 wt% wasted green tea leaves were irradiated for 1-200 h using a xenon lamp to examine the effect of irradiation on antibacterial properties of the paper. Irradiation for 20 h (cumulative ultraviolet dose at 365 nm, 6.67 × 106 J/m2) or longer was found to greatly increase the antibacterial activity of the paper to a level at which no bacterial cell was confirmed to be viable. The paper was also covered with various glass filters and irradiated for 1 h. Irradiation exclusively with visible rays did not significantly affect the antibacterial activity of the paper, whereas irradiation exclusively with ultraviolet rays, even for a short time, greatly increased the antibacterial activity.
