Recycling Paper

Recycling Paper

Paper recycling is a great way to make some extra money. All you need is a few supplies and a little bit of time. First, gather up all of the paper you can find around your home. Next, sort the paper by type and weight. Once you have a good pile of paper, take it to your local recycling center. They will weigh your paper and pay you based on the current market value.

In the United States, recycling one ton of paper can save the equivalent of 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space, enough electricity to power the average home for six months, 7,000 gallons of water, and 380 gallons of oil.

In order to recycle paper, you will need a paper recycling bin, paper to recycle, and a way to transport the paper to a recycling facility. It is recommended that you sort the paper by type before recycling.

⚠️Potential Risk
While recycling paper can be lucrative, it also poses certain risks - namely the cost of transportation and contamination.
