Mixed Paper Recycling
Accepted within the Mixed Paper stream are:
- Paper packaging
- Glove boxes
- Tissue boxes
- Cereal and food packaging
- Craft paper and wrapping paper
- Books, hard- and soft-cover
Some paper is waxy but you can perform the "rip test" to find out if it belongs in the Mixed Paper stream. If the paper rips easily, there is enough paper fibre to be recycled in the Mixed Paper stream. If the paper does not easily rip, it must be placed in garbage.
For recycling bin and lid stickers and signs, please contact your Housekeeping Department.
Important: All office copy paper must be placed in Confidential Shredding. All corrugated cardboard must be flattened and placed behind or beside a recycling station for removal by housekeeping staff.
