[GreenYes] Re: [Greenyes Digest] V3 #72 Clarification on Phone Booksmixed with newspapers

I have a clarification of the info I posted below, yesterday:

I have been informed that the rates of inclusion of materials other than newsprint must be well under 5% for this mix with magazines and phone books for the paper to be marketable and this is only true in our market where the newspaper we send off is very uncontaminated. Each recycler must negotiate its own acceptable paper mix with its own markets. I didn't mean to imply that this mix with news, phone books and magazines is generally acceptable. Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience this caused.

Hello Doris:
In Orange Co.NC our paper broker (Paper Stock Dealers) readily accepts phone books & glossy mags w/ the newsprint for a mix that goes to newsprint mills in either Georgia or TN. One of the other brokers, the newspaper publisher McClatchy (News and Observer of NC) doesn't want anything except news w/ their mix that goes to a newsprint mill in Georgia (SOutheast Paper). So it's different everywhere.
