Office paper with much printing on it....

14 years ago

Yes, I know this question has been asked and answered somewhere on this forum, but I forgot to bookmark or copy, and time is short (garbage day is tomorrow).....

I have a large quantity of office paper (it fills and overflows the top of a box that had contained printer paper). The paper is heavily marked -- Many pages have text from top margin to bottom, single spaced, and those that do not contain maps, printed with grey tones.

So I think that the papers in the box may contain a much higher-than-normal ratio of ink to blank paper... Meaning possibly higher than normal relative to what people here may collect from their offices for composting (?)

What say you guys? Throw it in the compost pile (or use as bottom layers of lasagna beds)? Or just recycle?
