All receipts, unless you know they are non-BPA, non-thermal paper (like those at Ecology Center store) should go in the landfill (grey cart). This type of paper has chemicals that should not be mixed in with paper recycling.


Refuse your receipt! Be sure to wash your hands after handling receipts if you do take it.
