Place paper items like copy paper, school and craft paper, sticky notes, or stationery in a curbside recycling cart or drop-off site container.

  • DO NOT include paper with metallic or glitter embellishments
  • Discard all non-paper contents, such as metal-spirals from notebooks
  • Keep items loose and do not bag

Tip: Scraps of plain paper smaller than 3" square (or the palm of your hand) should be placed inside of a larger paper envelope or folded piece of paper that you plan to recycle.

Did You Know

Due to their small size and flat shape, paper pieces or scraps that are smaller than 3" frequently fall out of the recycling system and can end up going to the landfill. To ensure a small piece of paper can be recycled, tuck it inside of a larger paper envelope and then place it in your recycling cart or container.
