Paper’s Rules for Recycling Paper
Check the rules for what recyclables are accepted in your local program.
No need to remove staples, paper clips or plastic windows from envelopes.
Keep it dry and free from liquid contaminants.
Paper coffee cups are not usually accepted (the inside is typically coated in plastic to prevent leaks).
Magazines and newspapers are usually recyclable.
Paper towels, tissues and napkins aren’t usually recyclable.
Wrapping paper is accepted in some programs if it is not metallic and does not have glitter or foil. Check the rules!
Cash register receipts cannot be recycled (thermal paper is plastic coated).
What Paper MacKay is listening to
Life isn’t always about recycling. It’s about life – hanging out with your raccoon friends, napping in attic spaces, rummaging through dumpsters, engaging in nocturnal capers and, of course, obsessing about recycling. But no matter how you live your life, you need cool music to go with it.
