Yes, magazines are normally included in paper collections as they can also be recycled. Most types of paper can be recycled together, including brochures, catalogues, the contents of junk mail, leaflets, magazines, newspaper and office paper. Often Recycling Points and kerbside containers designed for paper will not accept cardboard, envelopes or Yellow Pages (or sometimes any Telephone Directories) as these materials make the recycling process more difficult. The specific details for each system will depend on your Local Authority guidelines and you can find out more by contacting your Local Authority Helpline or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
As with other types of paper, magazines are pulped and recycled into newsprint and other paper products. Click here to see how your magazines are recycled. For more information on paper recycling please visit:
