Residential Recycling

Paper

Acceptable recyclable paper:
  • Office paper of any color (without staples & paperclips)
  • Newspaper, magazines & catalogs
  • Paperback books
  • Mail, including envelopes
Tip: If you can tear it, you can recycle it 
 
 
Unacceptable paper:
  • Paper containers with food stuck to it
  • Mylar paper (shiny paper life giftbags)
  • Greeting cards with glue or glitter
  • Tissue paper, napkins, toilet paper, & paper towels
Why can’t I recycle shredded paper? 

Paper smaller than the size of a credit card has the potential to cause jams in the recycling machines and cannot be sorted accurately.
