Mixed Paper Recycling Coming to Your Office This Summer

Over the summer Yale Recycling student workers will be re-labeling paper recycling bins to reflect changes in Yale's collection of paper waste. All bins will bear the label, “Mixed Paper,” and accept many more paper products.

To make recycling easier and take advantage of changing markets for recycled paper, Yale Recycling now allows you to put all your paper together into any of the paper bins on campus, whether labeled "Office Paper," "Newspaper," "Glossy Paper" or the new combined category of "Mixed Paper." The new labels will explain that nearly all paper items are recyclable: white paper, colored paper, glossy paper, manila folders, magazines/catalogs, cereal boxboard, hard and softcover books, sticky notes, etc.
