Homes and businesses use paper products on a daily basis, in fact paper products are responsible for 71 million tons of paper waste which ends up in municipal landfills each year. The good news is that when you participate in our blue bag recycling program you can actively reduce the amount of discarded paper products. Along with paper many of the cardboard products used every day are made of recycled materials or by products from other industries like sawdust and wood chips. Other types of recycled cardboard are used to make cereal boxes, tissues, paper towels, writing paper, and corrugated cardboard. Many of our customers are under the impression that magazines cannot be recycled and are surprised to learn that 45% of all magazine products are being recycled on a daily basis.

Recycling of Aluminum/Tin
When you think of recycling, one of the first things that come to mind is aluminum cans. Aluminum cans are 100% recyclable, so when you add them to your recycling bin, you are drastically reducing the energy needed to make new ones. Did you know that your recycled soda can is returned to the shelf as a brand new one is as little as 60 days? There are literally thousands of consumer products that are made from aluminum including foil food wrap and disposable cook wear. Aluminum can be recycled over and over as the process is simple and involves re-melting the metal. On the other end of the spectrum, your recycled soup and other tin food cans can be used to make household appliances and car parts.
