What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide

Colored paper, for recycling

Used colored paper, such as craft construction paper, is accepted for recycling in curbside recycling bins, and at the Drop-Off Station and Recovery Yard. Paper is still accepted when printed, drawn, or written on. Paper is also accepted with staples.

 

Recycle Right!

Colored paper falls under the mixed paper category. Staples in paper are fine to be left in when recycling, but if there is a metal binding, make sure to remove before recycling.

 

Live Zero Waste!

You can reuse colored paper as scrap paper.
