    Apparently the average pay “for old newspapers is about $50 a ton, depending upon your area.” Most recycling depots prefer the newspapers loose rather than bundled together. Another tip is:

    “Cardboard ordinary cardboard boxes that have been flattened, is bringing
    approximately $75 a ton. If you’re going to collect old newspapers, you may just as well take cardboard too. Most people have old boxes around that are just taking up space, and some will even pay you to get rid of them.”

    If you don’t have tons (literally) of newspaper, you could also consider donating them to a school.  Often schools or after school programs will use newspapers for art classes, either to catch meseses or as paper mache.
