Paper and Cardboard

Although you can dispose of paper in your trash bin, it can also be recycled. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, forty percent of all municipal solid waste consists of paper and paperboard products. By recycling and reducing paper consumption, more trees will be left in the forest to provide oxygen, shade, and wildlife habitat.  Paper and Cardboard examples include, but are not limited to, the following:
