How to recycle magazines

magazine stacks 2Share your recycled magazines and comics with new readers via literacy programs. We’ll send them to children, teens, and families in homeless and domestic violence shelters, job training and mentoring programs, and foster care.

Magazines and comics should be clean and in “good” or “very good” condition. Good means no torn or cut pages or covers, water or moisture damage, mustiness or excessive yellowing. Very good magazines are “like new”.

Please do not cut mailing labels from the magazine covers. Carefully remove paper mailing labels or black out ink mailing labels with a permanent marker (or we will) to protect your privacy and the dignity of new readers, but leave the covers intact.

There are two ways to send your magazines and comics to literacy program. You can be a Recycler or a Bundler

Recyclers” – simply ship magazines and comics to us.

Bundlers” take a few additional steps to sort and package magazines and comics for delivery.

Learn more about how to be a magazine Recycler or Bundler.

Volunteer: Magazines and comics are very powerful literacy resources and we appreciate your support. We are organizing local volunteer teams to collect, sort, and bundle magazines for delivery to literacy programs.

Raise funds or donate now to support our local literacy deliveries – 100% of funds received supports literacy by getting magazines and comics to at-risk readers.
