    That depends on what your local waste removal company accepts. Where I live, newspaper is accepted as part of “mixed paper.” However, you may want to double-check with your waste removal company by calling or e-mailing them.

    Some waste companies send pamphlets in the mail to their customers to tell them what they can and cannot recycle. If you just moved to where you are now, you might want to ask them for a pdf of the mailing. If they do not have a mailing at all, you might want to ask them to create one.

    If you mean traditional recycling methods, happyhodges has a wonderful answer. However, there are other ways to recycle paper that don’t involve companies! 

    Are you into arts and crafts, or do you have a kid? Newspaper is a key ingredient in paper mache! You don’t have to use a wire frame (arguably bad for the environment due to being metal and harder to biodegrade by the environment) either. You can make some nice paper mache sculptures just out of the material. Make sure you use an eco-friendly glue, though!

     

    If you have a garden or know somebody who gardens, you can also use newspaper as an ingredient in making your own compost! Some people recommend only using it for flower compost due to concerns about how the print on it could effect grown food products though, so keep that in mind.
