Is it better to recycle or compost newspaper?

    If the newspaper can be composted, it is more eco-friendly to compost rather than recycle. By doing so, you will not contribute to energy or resources being used in the recycling process. Further, by making natural compost you are reusing things rather than having to go buy fertilizer which also takes energy and resources to make.  Some chemical fertilizers are harmful to the environment as well.

    It is far better to recycle the newspaper than compost. Recycling will save the fiber value of newsprint. You can compost other parts of the trees such as leaves, small branches etc. which has no fiber value.
