Paper and Cardboard
Recycle All Paper All the Time

35% of paper is thrown away and sitting in landfills. This makes it the top material we trash. For every 100 pounds of garbage, about 35 pounds is paper.

Paper Board
The Good News
  • ALL paper can be recycled: newspapers, catalogs, magazines, office paper, junk mail, envelopes, phone books, cardboard, paper egg cartons, cereal and tissue boxes, etc.
  • Most paper can be recycled up to 8 times.
  • Recycling paper uses 60% less energy than manufacturing from new material.
  • If everyone used a canvas bag for groceries, over 60,000 trees would be saved yearly.
