Do just one thing

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL SPORTS - By Danny Seo

They feel like pa­per. They tear like pa­per. So they must be re­cy­clable like pa­per, right? No, the lit­tle slips that come out of the ATM are not re­cy­clable. The rea­son is that they’re not just pa­per; they’re made of some­thing called “ther­mopa­per” that is coated in plas­tic and is de­signed to re­act to heat. That’s how in­for­ma­tion is printed on the ATM slips with ink (and why they are slightly warm when you retrieve them). If you can, opt for no re­ceipts at the ATM. But if you must have re­ceipts, be sure to toss them in the trash and never re­cy­cle them.
