Did You Know

Adhesive-backed stickers or labels, and their smooth, peel-off backing sheets are not easily recycled through traditional methods. To help stickers peel off easily, the paper backing (also called glassine) is pressed and flattened, or coated with a plastic resin. The adhesives and resins are difficult to separate from the paper, and these processes damage the quality of the paper fibers. To prevent contamination of other recyclables, place this item in the garbage.
