[GRRN] Office Paper Recycling
Hello All -

I had a phone call today from a gentleman, Larry Beiter, who is trying to have
office paper recycled from his manufacturing facility in Indianapolis, IN. 
Apparently the company that was taking the paper said that they aren't producing
enough and they wanted to start charging them to pick up the paper. 
Unfortunately, this is not an option for his company, but he's still trying to
"do the right thing"!! 

The company generates about a toter full of office paper every 2-3 weeks, which
makes the economies of scale a little difficult - not to mention they don't have
neighbors to consolidate their loads.  Another issue is that some of the paper
is shredded for security reasons and apparently this posed a problem for their
previous recycler.

Any chance folks know of some recyclers in that part of the world that would be
willing to pick up for free?  Larry's willing to work out a strategy, pick-up
schedule that would limit the number of times the recycler would need to service
the containers.  

Anything you can offer to him would be terrific.  I've cc:ed him above, so
please respond to him directly.

Thanks so much!!
