Answer: You've asked a very open-ended question. It would be best for your compost pile if you recycled glossy magazine-type papers, and shredded only computer paper and regular letters and envelopes to add to the pile. There are dyes in the colored picturesof newspapers and magazines that you probably don't want in your garden or compost pile. If these items are recycled, they'll be made into similar products, and that's the safest way to dispose of them.
