Paper towel is an absorbent, disposable towel made from used paper and is used for cleaning, wiping liquids and greases around the house.

Why is it not recyclable?

  • Paper towel's fibres are weak and are not suitable for recycling, like toilet paper.

  • They cannot be mixed with other clean recyclable items to increase their recyclability.

What now?

  • Compost it, if you did not use it for harmful chemicals or anything that cannot go into your compost.

  • Throw it in the non-recyclable bin, if what you wiped with it can also be safely discarded in the bin (such as hazardous liquids).
