A good way to recycle magazines and newspapers is to put them in a paper shredder and use the shreds for packing parcels! This works great! Looks neat too if you use magazines as the shreds are colourful.

I do this also, but use it for mulching my plants. It also keeps the weeds down. (03/08/2008)
If you use if for mulching, do you wet it so it doesn't blow away? (03/08/2008)
Use the shredded newsprint for animal waste instead of sand or litter. Use the glossy magazine pages for making the best paper mache' crafts possible. You'll not regret it. God bless you. : ) (03/09/2008)
