Paper Retriever

The Paper Retriever program is a free revenue-generating service for schools, offices, churches and other community-based organizations. The program pays you based on volume and market, to host collection bins on your property, benefiting both the environment and your organization. For many participants the Paper Retriever program is an effective fundraising strategy. To maximize revenue, your school and the local community must be fully aware of the program and its benefits. The more you recycle, the more you will earn.

How Paper Retriever Program Works

  • Request to Host a Bin Host a Paper Retriever collection bin on your property
  • Promote the Program Promote the Paper Retriever collection program to your friends, neighbors and surrounding community
  • Collect Revenue Receive consistent revenue based on your collected volume

Paper Retriever Partner You Can Trust

Royal Oak Recycling is a global leader in the recycling of paper and is one of the world’s largest independent newspaper and magazine recyclers. Paper placed in the Paper Retriever bin is directly recycled back into newsprint within a few weeks of it being collected. Acceptable materials include newspapers, magazines, catalogs, books, office paper, school paper, and mail with no need to sort.

Make the Most of Your Program

A Paper Retriever bin will hold between 1,000 to 2,000 pounds of paper. Less if the paper is simply loose school paper or shredded paper, more if the contents are the newspapers, catalogs and magazines that you need to encourage the local community to deposit. Follow these steps to make the most of your Paper Retriever program.

Paper Retriever Bin Location

Your paper retriever container needs to be placed in a highly visible and easily accessible location for use by students’ parents and the community.

Paper Retriever Bins & Boxes

Place recycling bins and boxes in your classrooms and offices to ensure they are readily accessible. This ensures that ALL paper will be recycled.

Present your program at meetings and tell others in your community, school, workplace, etc. Community participation is essential for a successful program. Use your Parent – Teacher meetings to make sure that everyone is aware of your recycling program.

Promote your program. Let everyone know this is a fundraiser and ONLY newspapers, magazines, books, catalogs and mail are permitted in the container. NO CARDBOARD.
