Recycling of magazines is extremely easy because there is nothing unique about magazines that makes it difficult to process. Most magazines can be included in your standard recyclables. Contact your local government to find out how to sort your recycling for collection. If you prefer, you can also compost your newspaper together with leaves, food waste and lawns. If you want to get more use of your newspaper before you recycle or compost it, use it as packaging material, gift packaging, weed killers or window cleaners.
[ Edit ] Step
[ Edit ] Use your standard recycling
- Contact your local government to see if they take newspapers. There is nothing special about magazines that makes it difficult to recycle. However, some local authorities have unique restrictions on the type of recyclable materials that can be put in the same trash, and some require paper and plastic to be separated. Call your local streets and sanitation department to see what their recycling needs are for magazines. 
- Look online to find your local streets and departmental phone numbers. It can also be written on your trash if your city provided it.
- The vast majority of the time, your city's waste department will say that the magazine can be filled in the same trash bin as your other plastic, paper and cardboard boxes.
- Put your newspaper in your regular trash. Fold your magazine flat so that it fits in your trash and doesn't take up a lot of space. Place it outside for your weekly package along with cardboard and other paper. 
- Keep your recycling fluids away from food contamination by sticking to your roof holders and disposable plates. Food waste and oily residue belong to the trash, not to your trash.
- Take your magazines to a recycling facility if your city doesn't pick up. If your local government doesn't recycle or they refuse to take newspapers, you can take them to a factory yourself. Look online to find recycling facilities in your area. Call the nearest facility and ask them if they take the newspaper. If they do, wait until you have filled a trash can with newspapers. Then drive them to the local plant and release them for recycling, 
- Unless the plant has a particular focus on materials that are difficult to process, the recycling plant near you will have trouble taking your newspaper.
- Most municipal facilities do not charge a fee for dropping materials.
[ Edit ] Composting Newspaper
- Create a compost bin or pile with your magazine as a filler. Composting is the process of stacking up organic materials and letting them decompose over time. This can be done in a compartment, drawer or free standing pile. Choose to set up a compost bin or box to keep the compost. If you have a large yard, a free standing high is good. 
- You need a mix of "green" and "brown" materials for compost. Green materials refer to organic materials that are usually green, such as plants, flowers and food waste. Browns tend to be white or brown. Newspapers are counted as brown for composting purposes, even if they are white or gray.
- Get a compartment with a lid if you are worried about the smell. However, it is not important for the composting process.
- Place your newspapers in the lower half of a compost bin or pile. To efficiently compost, you need an even mix of green and brown layers. Since the magazine takes longer to break down than ordinary organic waste and can blow away in the wind, lay it flat in the lower half of your trash to keep it weighted down. You can add any number of layers, but the more you add, the longer it takes to break down. 
- It doesn't matter what type of magazines you use or how many layers you add. The larger your compost pile, the longer it takes to break down.
- Insert your magazine into thinner layers if you want them to compost as quickly as possible.
- Include a mixed set of green and brown layers for maximum efficiency.
- Add your compost by hand or with a shovel. You should not add any toxic materials to the pile to begin with, so it will be good to stir the compost.
- Wait 2-4 weeks for your pile to break down. Compost will naturally break down over time. Eventually, it turns into a soil-like substance that you can use in your garden as a fertilizer. Leave the pile alone for 2-4 weeks so it starts to break. 
- Mix your hay and wait another 3-4 weeks until your compost breaks down. The time it takes for your compost to decompose depends on the materials, temperature and air flow to which the compost is exposed. After the first 2-4 weeks have passed, use a shovel or trowel to mix your pile. Mix the pile once a week to continue introducing air, which helps break down the organic materials. Wait another 3-4 weeks for your pile to break down into a soil-like material. 
- It may take longer than 6 weeks for your compost to break if you have a really large pile.
- Use your garden compost as a soil soil. Compost is a nutritious material that will promote healthy plant growth in your garden. Once your compost has broken, spread it out over your garden like an earth soil to incorporate it into your garden or garden. 
- Start a new compost pile or compartment as you spread out your broken compost.
- You can see when a compost pile is decomposed when you can no longer identify the ingredients that you originally added. It should look like a uniform soil with earth-like debris.
[ Edit ] Upcycling and Reusing Newspaper
- Use old newspapers as gift boxes to cut down on waste. Instead of spending money on ornate gift boxes, use old newspaper stacks to wrap your presents. Load a sheet of newspaper plates and place your box or item in the center of the paper. Pull a corner up and level it with the palm of your hand. Use a tape to attach the corner to the item and repeat for the other corners. Use several sheets in layers on top of each other to cover the object. 
- Store delivered goods from breaking with newspaper. The magazine is soft and makes a fantastic packaging material. Instead of using bubble wrap or packing peanuts, fill your crates with crumpled newspaper to prevent your items from breaking or cracking while they're being shipped. 
- Packing peanuts and bubble paper is extremely difficult to recycle. This is a good way to avoid introducing them to the environment.
- Do not use newspaper to protect perishable goods. The ink on the paper can get into the organic material. 
- Clean windows and glass with black and white newspaper. The next time you take a little window cleaner to clean the windows, use newspapers instead of paper towels. Spread the newspaper around the palm and wipe the windows with a circular motion after you spray them with the detergent. Dry magazines can also be used to wipe the cleaner and wipe the window dry. 
- Do not use paper with color ink on it to do this. Sometimes colored ink breaks down and dries off when it gets wet. However, black and white newspaper will be good.
- If you really want to cut down your carbon footprint, use a mixture of 1-part vinegar and 1-part water instead of a commercial cleaning.
- You can compost your vinegar-soaked magazine when you're done. However, you cannot recycle it in your regular recycling bin.
- Fight weeds in your garden with newspaper stacks. If you want to use newspapers in your garden, take a bundle of 5-10 magazines. Take them to a weed-infested area in your garden and place them directly on top of the weeds. Then cover the papers with wood chips or bark to quell the weeds and prevent them from spreading. Over time, your magazines will decompose on the weeds and work their way into the soil, killing the weeds in the process. 
- This is a great way to get rid of newspapers naturally without introducing harmful chemicals into your garden.
