Most magazines and catalogs are printed on coated, groundwood paper. Clay, by far the most common coating, is used to help smooth the paper surface and to create an optimum surface to which glossy inks can adhere. Groundwood is the same kind of paper used for newspapers. A two-sided coated paper sheet used for magazines will normally have 30% to 35% clay and filler and 65% to 70% paper fiber.
Magazines and catalogs are often collected in office recycling programs. Magazines currently are not recycled curbside in Fort Collins. Keep telephone books separate.
