Soiled Paper

Garbage Bin Organic Bin

Uncoated food soiled paper such as food soiled napkins, food soiled paper towel, food soiled brown paper bags and uncoated/nonglossy food soiled newspaper can go in your Organic Bin.

*Please do NOT include paper napkins or paper towels with cleaning chemicals or bathroom waste in your organic bin. This goes in the garbage bin.


Do Not Recycle

Paper that is wet, oily, or soiled cannot be recycled. In addition to potentially contaminating the recycling stream, wet paper has shorter fibers which makes them less valuable to a recycling processor. Oily or soiled paper fibers cannot be separated from the oils during the pulping process of paper recycling.
