Do Just One Thing For April 18, 2021

Can you recycle old printed photographs with your scrap paper recycling? Yes and no. It all depends on how the photo was printed. If it was done in an old-fashioned chemical processing fashion, then no. If it was printed using modern digital technology, yes. How do you find out? Simply tear it. If the photograph rips with a very clean tear, it can be recycled; if it's hard to tear and rips in layers and not so cleanly, you likely have a nonrecyclable photo that needs to be thrown into the trash, not the recycling bin.
