In general, saddle-stitched (stapled) and perfect bound booklets can be thrown into the recycling bin as is, including any staples or glued binding. The glue we use is a polyurethane reactive adhesive so it’s durable and recyclable.

Wire-O bound notebooks can also be recycled, but you should separate the wire from the paper pages before throwing them into your recycling bin.
The pages in your book are compostable, however, the spines use materials that are not. Please remove any staples, glue, or wire and throw them away, before putting pages into your compost pile. We also recommend shedding the pages before adding them to a home compost pile.
Our customer service team is more than happy to answer any additional questions you might have. They can be reached via email at csr@greenerprinter.com or via phone at 1-800-655-5833 Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.

We can produce books with as many or as few pages as you’d like. Certain binding styles may have page count limits. Perfect bound books must have at least 28 pages. Saddle-stitched books cannot have more than 60 pages.
