How to Recycle Office Paper

Paper is part of our everyday lives, and computer or printing paper is perhaps the most readily used paper product, aside from newspapers. Here are some alarming stats to show just how much paper we consume.

We’re likely a long way going completely paperless. As such, recycling is important if we’re going to protect our planet. As the following statistics show, paper recycling benefits are big.

As one of the most commonly recycled products in the residential waste stream, paper recycling is very straightforward:

Curbside recycling: For the most part, if you have curbside pick-up for recycling, you’ve got a way to recycle your printer paper. If you’re still concerned, you can always call up your recycling service provider to see if they have any specific rules for preparing paper for recycling.

Recycling drop off: If you don’t have curbside recycling in your area, look into drop-off boxes or stations where you can deliver your recyclables for processing

In many local communities shredded paper is accepted for recycling, but there are some programs that refuse such waste. There are a few reasons for this. First, when you shred your paper, you shorten the fibers so that the resulting material is of lesser quality than regular computer paper. Second, shredded paper can cause maintenance problems and even pose fire concerns for some recycling companies.

When recycling isn’t an option, there’s always the possibility to reuse your paper at home. Here are some simple ideas to keep your computer paper out of the landfill

Print on both sides of the paper. In other words, if you’ve only used one side, designate one drawer or slot in your printer for recycled paper that you can use to print “internal” documents

Make crafts using the un-printed side of paper designated for recycling

Make packing material by crumpling up old printer paper for protecting fragile items from breaking during an upcoming move
