Waste Paper & Cardboard Recycling

Regional Recycling accepts most types of waste paper products including newspapers, books, paper packaging, cardboard and more. When you recycle paper it helps to reduce emissions, conserves our natural resources, and saves energy.

If paper is thrown away it begins to rot which produces methane. This is a powerful greenhouse gas that is incredibly efficient at trapping the sun’s rays & warming up our planet.

Recycling Paper Saves More Than Just Trees!

Did you know? Recycling 1 ton of paper products saves 17 large full grown trees, 26,000 liters of water, about 3 cubic meters of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil and 4000 kilowatt hours of electricity which is enough to power the average home for 5 months. So is recycling worth it? We think so.

Bring us your waste paper for recycling. We will make sure it ends up in the right hands. Lets work together to save the planet.

* New Rules For Cardboard Recycling

Due to the volatility of the markets, we have to charge our customers to recycle cardboard.

Residential: Free up to 1 yard. Anything over will incur a fee of $5 / yard.
EXAMPLE: 3 yards = $10

Commercial: Will incur a fee of $5 per yard, regardless of quantity.
EXAMPLE: 3 yards = $15
