Receipts contain BPA, a poisonous chemical found in plastics. This is proven to cause cancer and infertility but also means that they cannot be recycled and will leach toxic chemicals from landfill. So, refuse a receipt when you can and if you can’t, do not contaminate your paper recycling with them.
