bulk paper cardstock size

Seeking a bulk source for blank paper in a specific size range: shorter side anywhere from 5 to 6.5 inches, longer side anywhere from 6.5 to 8 inches. Also seeking hard/thick cardstock in bulk, same size range. Recycled a big plus but not a must. (I'm in U.S./NYC.)

I've called 311 (NYC's non-emergency hotline) three times over these hours; they transfer me to the relevant department, the DEP, who take the report, but nobody comes. Yes I'm positive I'm reporting the correct intersection, and it's ultra-simple to find. Anybody else I can call or anything else I can do anonymously? [more inside]
