Newspapers belong with your RECYCLING.


Please Remember: Remove any plastic wrapping and free gifts from newspapers, magazines and flyers before recycling. These should go in your refuse bin. Newspaper and magazine plastic covers can be recycled at some supermarkets in their carrier bag and plastic film collection points

Hints and Tips: Why not ask local schools if they would like your old newspapers for art classes?


  • 90% of Sunday newspapers are thrown away in Britain. This is the equivalent to half a million trees.

  • We could fill 103,000 double-decker buses with the amount of wastepaper sent to landfills each year.
