Recycling Tips for the Home, continued

Paper and Cardboard

Paper and cardboard which can be recycled: newspapers, magazines, advertising leaflets, letters, telephone directories, writing paper, cardboard and cardboard boxes, egg cartons and envelopes.

Paper and cardboard which cannot be recycled: waxed cardboard cartons, plastic coated paper bags (e.g. cereal bags), tissues and thermal fax paper.

Remember to:

  • Separate paper and cardboard from each other and store them separately from other recyclables.
  • Flatten cardboard boxes.
  • If your council collects paper make sure that on collection days, you tie the bundles with string (not plastic!) or place a heavy object on top to stop the paper from blowing away. Have separate bundles for paper and cardboard.
  • Make sure the paper isn't dirty or contaminated with food, metals, glass or plastic. Newspapers and magazines need to be clean and dry for recycling.
