I have some contact paper on kitchen wall I am going to remove, (been there forever) does anyone know how to get the sticky stuff off after the contact paper is removed? Has to be something non toxic, as we have a parrot and do not want to harm him. Thanks for any info.

Try rubbing the sticky stuff with a cloth with oil, it works well on the kitchen walls them wipe a dry cloth.

Baby oil and a cloth, useful for most sticky things, like jars and labels etc

I use Goo Gone. That is a orange oil based product and it works great on sticker and price tag residue.

What is the best way to remove the glue left behind after contact paper has been on a shelf for a long time?

Try Goo-Gone, it is in a bottle about the size of nail polish remover and can be found at stores like Walmart.
