AF&PA Advises You to Think Before You Throw

Common Household Items that can be Recycled
Recycling doesn’t have to start and stop in the kitchen. Many household paper products and packaging commonly located in the bathroom, office or even right at your front door can be recycled.
Common household paper items and materials that are recyclable include:
Cardboard tubing from toilet paper
White and colored paper; printing paper, stationary paper, notebooks
Your mail including envelopes, postcards, coupons and advertisement mail
Paper packaging from food items such as cereal or pasta boxes
More than twice as much paper and paper-based packaging is recycled than is sent to landfills. And for every ton of paper that is recovered, 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space is saved. That’s roughly the size of almost two large refrigerators. Help keep the cycle going by making recycling more convenient in your home. We recommend placing recycling bins in common areas of your home; where you go through your mail, in your home office, bathrooms and the kitchen are all great places. Check with your local municipality to be sure if an item is accepted in your area and for instructions on how to properly recycle items in your area. And always ensure before placing a paper-based item in your recycling bin that it is dry, clean and free of food residue. Now that you’re in the know, think before you throw.
