Paper Recycling

Paper Products

Below you’ll find a list of the materials we accept in our paper recycling programs:

  • Paper – White & Coloured
  • Newspapers & Magazines
  • Mail and Envelopes
  • Paper Bags
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Shredded Paper

Please NO blue or white roll. 

Paper is collected within the Mixed Recycling waste stream, however if you use a lot the best practice for recycling is to collect paper separately. This keeps the fibres clean and preserves its recycling life longer!

Staples or Stickies? - Still Recyclable

If you’re worried about the stray staple or sticky note contaminating a load, you can rest easy. Once the paper is pulped, it is screened for common contaminants, like staples and clips, which are immediately removed.

Most facilities are also equipped to remove the sticky adhesive from mixed papers, such as Post-it Notes.

Still wondering if your paper is recyclable? Just ask – we’re happy to help find you an answer!
