IT'S NOT JUST NEWSPAPERS ANYMORE!
The Cape Paper Campaign

For the past several months, more and more Cape Cod towns are joining the Cape Paper Campaign as they take the plunge....and the pledge....to dramatically boost their paper recycling.
This ambitious Cape-wide effort is an offshoot  of the MassRecyclesPaper initiative whose goal is to get an additional one million tons of paper out of the trash each year. How?  Simple!  USE LESS and RECYCLE MORE PAPER.
To help yourself get started, try this short quiz:
TRUE OR FALSE:
    1) Magazines, brochures and pamphlets are recyclable ­ even those made with glossy paper.
    2) Staples and paper clips do not need to be removed from paper before recycling.
    3) Cereal boxes, envelopes, office paper and unwanted mail will be used to make the cover of the 7th Harry Potter book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", at a Massachusetts paper mill.
    4) In 2005, Massachusetts saved about 31 trillion BTUs of energy by recycling paper --enough to power 295,372 homes for one year.
    5) Massachusetts residents & businesses throw away 1.5 million tons of paper each year, enough to fill Fenway Park with a mound as tall as the Prudential Center.
ALL OF THE ABOVE STATEMENTS ARE TRUE!
(MassRecyclesPaper.org)
AND ALL OF THE ABOVE ITEMS ARE ACCEPTED AT THE CHATHAM TRANSFER STATION.
