Tip of the Week 7-Oct-09
Keep thermal and carbonless copy papers out of your paper recycling bin. By not allowing these chemically-coated papers into the recycling stream, you will be reducing the amount of potentially hazardous chemicals that find their way into recycled paper products. Remember, when hazardous chemicals end up in recycled food packaging , they can easily migrate from the packaging into food. Ask your local municipal recycling station how best to handle these chemically-coated papers.
