Q.  Do you take shredded paper?

A.  Yes we do. We prefer that the shredded paper be in large plastic bags so it stays contained.  If some already is in the container don’t worry about it.  It’s just easier to handle in the bag.  (Please use bags that are 40 gallons or larger.)

Q.  Why is cardboard not allowed to be mixed in with the paper?

Q.  Can I recycle tissues or napkins?

A.  No,. Tissue, paper towel and napkins are all considered personal hygiene or clean-up products. Due to potential contamination, these products are not acceptable as recyclables.

Q. Will you collect every container throughout our office?


A.  As we are trying to collect as much paper as we can for recycling.  We ask that you have it in a centralized place for pickup.  You want the people in your office to become personally aware of the importance of paper recycling.

Q.  If I am on a one month schedule when will you pickup our paper?


A.  If your pickup day is on Wednesdays and you have a one month pickup, we will pickup your paper every 28 days from your last Wednesday pickup.  So if your pickup is on the 1st of the month your next pickup would be on the 28th.

For other scheduled pickups, it will be as follows

1 week schedule is every 7 days.

2 weeks schedule is every 14 days.

3 weeks schedule is every 21 days.

4 weeks schedule is every 28 days.

5 weeks schedule is every 35 days.

6 weeks schedule is every 42 days.

Q.  Our bin is full before my weekly pickup is available can I schedule a pickup twice a week.


A.  At this time Paper Dragon Recycling only offers a once a week pickup.  One solution would be to pickup another container, since we have no limits on how much paper can be picked up at one time.

Q.  How can we get more people in our office to start recycling their paper?
