Collecting magazines at home to recycle to new readers

Thank you Tiffany for helping organize this Getting Started article for people who want to collect magazines at home to recycle to new readers. Join us to start recycling magazines today.  Here’s another article for those who want to be part of a local magazine recycling team.

Hello and welcome to magazineliteracy.org where our mission is to change the world— one magazine at a time. Out of the goodness of your heart, you have decided to donate some magazines to one of our wonderful programs. We are so appreciative and thrilled that you have decided to do this!

The process of recycling is easy and we want to make the process as simple as possible for you so you can feel comfortable about donating again and again! This article will  explain the process step by step for you.

First things first – gather all your gently used magazines – clean, with not torn pages or covers, and in good or very good condition.  Carefully remove any paper mailing labels and black out ink labels with a permanent marker.  This protects your personal information and allows for a more dignified experience for the new magazine owner and we want your magazines, NOT your personal information.  Once we receive your magazines, we will put our own “gift” labels over the spot where the old label was.

That’s all there is to it.  Just bundle up your magazines for a local donation bin or ship them to us.

So, that is the process for donating your gently used magazines! Super simple right?! I hope this article helps! If you have any questions, please be in touch.
