    I've always put my grocery receipts in my recycling bin. How do I know if that's a no-no?

    What makes for a sustainably managed forest? Not old trees, but quick growing trees that, as soon as they are harvested, another quick growing sapling replaces it?

    If paper has been bleached with dioxin, and after one or two recyclings, when the fibers are too short, then what becomes of dioxin bleached short fibers, even newspaper? They can be put into a compost? With dioxin? I believe I saw another recyclebank exercise that said newspapers can be put in compost.
