Still recyclable after all these years!
Paper is really valuable and easy to turn into new paper even when it's old and used. Recycle it!|
We all use a product made of paper every day. Recycling one ton of paper saves 3,700 pounds of wood, 24,000 gallons of water and creates jobs in our local economy.
Did you know more than 40% of what ends up in our landfill is paper that could have been recycled? In the landfill, paper is a wasted resource, but if we keep it out of the landfill by recycling it paper can be made into new paper items over and over, many times.
Don't let one piece of paper hit the garbage can.
Take the paper recycling pledge.
Remember newspaper and newspaper inserts, cardboard, junk mail, envelopes, catalogs, magazines, home office, printer and craft paper of all shapes, sizes and colors can be recycled.
