If you have a kleenex and there is just boogers on it or some semen can that go in recycling?


Thanks.

Someone will have to touch that then, and even if they're wearing rubber or vinyl gloves, they could still get infected with whatever germs or cooties you have.

Soiled paper is a no-no.

And soft paper, including tissues, is a no-no whether it is soiled or not.

thank you! by tps12 (4.00 / 4) #8 Mon Aug 21, 2006 at 09:16:56 AM EST
Finally, some solid information!

This also saves me what was starting to look like a fairly unpleasant sorting task.

I don't know much, but I can tell you this: by webwench (4.00 / 1) #7 Mon Aug 21, 2006 at 09:12:35 AM EST
I will never, ever buy 'green' recycled paper products of any variety after reading your post.

So, yeah, go ahead and toss the boogery, semen-covered rags into the recycle bin. I'm sure it's just fine.


Getting more attention than you since 1998.

The truly eco-aware wouldn't use kleenex.

You don't recycle tissue paper.  I believe that it is actually sorted out before the actual recycling process begins.
