Officials at the Northeast Kingdom Waste Management District say old newspapers and magazines waiting to be recycled paper are backing up, thanks to a steep drop in prices for them.

Truckloads of recyclables that once fetched $2,000 are now going for as little as $200 as the result of global economic uncertainty.

Now, they can’t even give the old paper away.
