You Can Make a Difference"
Abilene Recycling Center - Public Outreach and Education Program
This month at the Abilene Recycling Center, we chipped a full semi-truck load of baled corrugated cardboard and one of baled magazines and office paper.
You might wonder when you drop off your office type paper, what happens to it.
As far as the 3 general forms of paper that we accept, office paper is considered the best quality. We often receive shredded documents from local businesses.
Currently, when these bales of office paper leave Abilene, they are first shipped to a warehouse in Kansas City where they are consolidated with more bales of the same make-up and then these go to Georgia-Pacific Company in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
Then your office paper is processed into paper towels, hand towels and toilet paper. These products and then distributed under the Kirkland label at Costco Stores.
