Paper Recycling

Paper Recycling Information!

If you sort your paper into the categories below, we will no longer charge you for your mixed waste paper! (Secure documents still have a charge – call about our Document Destruction services).

We now have several categories for paper, and the prices we pay are different for each category.

In all categories, paper must be flattened and not crumpled up.

(Please note: the prices below are for when you bring paper in to our facility. If you need us to pick up your paper, there is a charge for that service. Please call for details!)

Please remove:
Wax-coated paper, foil or foil-coated paper, plastic or plastic-coated paper, carbon paper, photos, colored hanging- and file- folders, paper plates, napkins, paper towels, or Kleenex. Please no garbage, rubber bands or plastic.

Fastener/Medical file folders can be included in with Category A paper, as long as the metal part is removed.
