Glossy Magazines ARE Recyclable!

Glossy magazines ARE recyclable

Even though glossy magazines and catalogs look like they have a plastic coating, they really don’t. You can test this by placing a drop of water on one. It will absorb water rather than repel the water drops.

So please recycle glossy magazines and catalogs in your recycling bin!
