Take the newspaper out of the bag, now remove the elastic and flatten the newspaper before putting it into the box. You can put the wrap or plastic bags — inside
of one bag. Grocery bags are okay for this. Then you want to tie the bag up and put the
whole thing into the box. You can take the elastic and either
re-use it or put it into the garbage. You need to do this because the sorting machines can’t separate the plastic from the paper and the rolled up package acts like a bottle
instead of a flat newspaper … and ends up in the wrong place.
