The following types of newspaper and magazine paper, and other general use paper, may be recycled:

  • Newspapers, including slick advertisements
  • Magazines (after reuse in common areas)
  • Other sick/shiny paper, such as brochures
  • Boxboard/Paper Board (single layered material like the backs of paper pads, cereal boxes & the boxes that envelopes and many other products come in. It is also used as the cores to rolls of paper towel or toilet tissue.)
  • Brown paper bags and brown expanding folders

Be careful not to contaminate the newspaper/magazine bins by mixing the protective plastic newspaper bags or other like items with the paper.
