Do you leave reminders on documents or around the house on Post-it notes? Even though there is an adhesive strip on the back of each note, the good news is that paper sticky notes are easily recyclable with traditional office paper. No matter the color, all of the dye and glue is removed in the pulping and de-inking process. Since the adhesive is water soluble, the little paper squares are perfectly fine to recycle. Even better: You can find sticky notes made from recycled paper, too, to help complete the recycling loop.
