Re: [GreenYes] Question about Paper and Cardboard
Tom,

Probably, but you need to ask them this question.  There are
paper recycling systems that can handle commingled fibers,
but not everyone has them.  If your recycler asks you to keep
white fibers (news, OP, mags) separate from brown fibers
(cardboard, paperboard) then they probably have a good
reason.
