If you have large amounts of paper to recycle and want to ensure it gets recycled, a great way to do this is to drop off the paper at the recycling locations in the link above and Green Fiber, a local company will collect the clean paper and recycle it into insulation. Please note, we do not accept shredded paper in the curbside bin, but Green Fiber does accept it if it’s contained in a box or paper bag.
