Can I recycle recycled paper?

    Yes, it falls under the “mixed paper” category. So long as it is not soiled by chemicals, food, laminated, or covered with stickers, which will interfere with the recycling process, it should be safe to recycle. There are other kinds, found in fast food wrappers, dog or cat food bags, or even carbon paper, that should not be.

    Yes, to a point.  Paper fibers, unlike glass, can not be recycled indefinitely without losing some of their integrity.  Over time as they are recycled repeatedly, the paper fibers become shorter.  But if you are recycling it as part of a mixed stream, you have nothing to worry about.  Recycle away!
