FREE Community Paper Recycling


abitibi paper retrieverPlease bring your newspapers, magazines, junk mail,business & school papers and catalogs to the West Ridge Chamber of Commerce Paper Retrievers!

The Abitibi Paper Retriever® program has been recognized nationally for its successful recovery rate. Abitibi-Consolidated Recycling Division is committed to providing this program since they are the end user of the paper we collect. Recovered paper is directed to processing centers where it is sorted into various grades and prepared for shipment. It is then routed to a de-inking facility and mills where it is used to manufacture recycled content newsprint.

Our goal is to collect a minimum of 2 tons of paper each month. Once we meet our goal the program turns into a fund-raising tool for our WRCC Lend a Helping Hand Program.
