Community Recycling
Maximum Order: 25

Recycling positively impacts a community and its environment. Everyone has the potential to make a significant contribution. And why wouldn’t you want to? Recyclables have value to manufacturers, as 78 percent of U.S. papermakers use some recovered fiber to make their products. Also, recovered paper supplies more than 36 percent of the raw material used to make new paper products that many of us use every day.

Business Recycling
Maximum Order: 25

Much of todays discarded material, especially paper, comes from businesses. According to the U.S. EPA, commercial sources like office buildings, schools, and institutions, make up about 35 to 45 percent of all municipal solid waste. About 93 percent of all office waste by weight is paper. Most of which, can be recycled. Still, less than half of all office papers are recycled. To increase the amount of recycled materials available for new products, more office papers and other paper products need to be recycled.
