Raven Recycling wants the public to know that we are in the process of moving about 160 bales of degraded mixed paper to the compost facility at the City of Whitehorse’s waste management facility.

We want to ensure that people understand that these bales can no longer be recycled because of their weathered condition.

The majority of these bales have been stored in our yard since 2008. At that time, paper markets closed due to the commodity crash. Since the markets re-opened, Raven has continually shipped out an average of 830 bales of mixed paper a year; this does not include cardboard.

The only alternative for degraded paper, other than landfilling, is composting. We are therefore thankful that the City of Whitehorse has agreed to use the old, mixed paper in their compost facility at this time.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at Raven Recycling, or come for a tour to learn more.
