Paper & Cardboard Recycling

shredder-779850_1280Paper comes from trees, a natural resource

Newspapers can be recycled into:

  • More newspapers
  • Paperboard
  • Animal bedding

Office paper can be recycled into:

  • Writing paper
  • Tissue
  • Paper towels

Corrugated cardboard can be recycled into:

  • New cardboard
  • Corrugated boxes

Paper cannot be continually recycled indefinitely. The fibbers weaken and the recycled paper can no longer be broken down into the fibber strands used to produce new paper.

Savings: Every ton of paper that is recycled saves 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of fresh water, and enough energy to heat a home for 6 months.
