Coated cardboard recycling?

Hi,

From what I could understand, I'm not supposed to put for paper recycling all those boxes I get with my Digitec deliveries, as they seem to be either coated or partly covered by plastic. Another example would be my newly acquired microwave box.

How am I supposed to handle this kind of trash?

Thanks

Re: Coated cardboard recycling?

if it is coated with plastic ,or like a milk carton you can't recycle it, so it goes in the züri sack.

All goes in the paper collection here, as they burn it.
