What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide


Newspaper can be thrown in curbside recycling bins. Or, if you need to recycle large amounts of newspaper, you can take it to the Drop-Off Station or Recovery Yard.


Recycle Right!

Make sure the newspaper is not covered in food or other contaminants so it can actually be recycled once it reaches the plant.


Live Zero Waste!

Old newspaper can be kept and reused around the house! For example, you can use it as packing material (great substitute for packing peanuts), litter box liners, to cover the ground during art projects, etc.
