Blue Bin Recycling
Place items in this section into your commingled recycling container if you have recycling service at your home, business, apartment or school.
You may also recycle at locations listed in this section.
Magazines, catalogs, and telephone directories with glossy paper and covers can be recycled in your blue bin. Don't worry about removing staples or covers; just throw them in.
Are reuse options available?
In addition to sharing newspapers and magazines with friends and family, you can donate them to community groups and nonprofit organizations. Take a look at our Magazine, Catalog and Phone Book Reuse page. Even some phone books can be reused!
If you'd like to reduce the amount of catalogs you receive, take a look at the Stop Junk Mail page.
