Glossy Magazines for fuel

Postby golddigger14s » Wed Dec 26, 2012 5:59 pm

I've found info on how to recycle newspaper into fire bricks, but how about those glossy magazines for fuel in the fireplace?

From my experience they do not work as well as regular print newspaper. Bricks with glossy print added in fell apart more often, and did not burn as well.

they don't recycle them at all .... there is usually a special bin, at the re-cycle centers, for the glossy magazines .... I think they burn them for fuel at the re-generation plants ....

The colors used in glossy magazine are ocasionally toxic when burned, so I wouldn't use them indoors. Also, the gloss comes in part from clay mixed with the wood pulp, which increases the ash.
