Paper - How to store and recycle?

Most paper products are recyclable. This includes;  newspapers, flyers, magazines, junk mail, office papers, writing papers, scrap papers, chipboards (i.e. cereal boxes), and cardboard boxes. Make sure to bundle these items together before throwing into the recycle bin. Also, flatten the cardboard boxes before tying them. Avoid using cardboard boxes as trash containers. Check with your local waste management company about recycling possibilities of old phone books in the area.

So, what type of paper products can’t be recycled?

Papers with any kind of plastic coatings or contamination can’t be recycled. For example, stickers, carbon papers, sanitary tissue papers, thermal fax papers, food or oil contaminated papers, pet food bags, and waxed papers are not recyclable.
