Old Newspapers are Great for Recycling!

Did you know that 27% of the newspapers produced in America are recycled? Do you have a whole closet filled with them? Saving newspapers can be a great way to remember events that took place in the past, but they shouldn’t take up precious storage space in your home. When will you ever read those newspapers again? Probably never! When you recycle newspaper and cardboard you are giving the Earth a breath of fresh air.

In many places it is mandatory to recycle your daily newspapers, and for good reason. In 2008, the amount of paper recovered for recycling averaged 340 pounds for every person in the U.S. It is helping to relieve our landfills all over the country, which have been growing at a faster rate than ever. ANY moisture touches the newspapers they will begin to mildew and mold because of the materials produced to make them. Depending on the ink used to make the prints, the newspapers could also be poisonous or even deteriorate on its own. So if you have tons of boxes filled with old rotting newspapers, we can get them off your hands and recycle them for you!
