Can paper that has had something glued on it, but removed, be recycled? This includes identification cards from organizations requesting a donation, as well as advertisements. ~Just Curious
Dear Just Curious,
Most of the time the answer to your question is yes. As long as you do not have an excessive amount of glue on paper and poster board, you can recycle them with paper. However, if the glued item is on waxy-feeling paper, it can’t be recycled.
