At the AEC Dropoff: 

The mixed paper compactor at our site accepts all mixed paper as well as cardboard and newspaper all in one bin.


Mixed paper consists of your junk mail, magazines, phone books, books, paper bags, shoe boxes, paper towel and toilet paper rolls and much of the packaging that your consumables come in (cereal and dried foods boxes, etc.)  Sometimes office paper is separated out because of the higher value of pure white paper pulp over mixed pulp.


- Can I recycle my __________ ?  The short answer to this question is almost always yes!  A good rule of thumb is "If it rips, it recycles"!  Almost all paper products can be recycled and many dropoffs accept all types of paper products mixed together.  The main thing is that it is not contaminated by food particles or grease.
