Q : 
How should or can I handle church weekly printed bulletins if I wish to dispose them? May I recycle them just as any paper products? If so, should I be shredding them before disposing? Or, should I bring them to any public places and leave them there, such as libraries, whenever possible and permissible?

Fr. Francis : 

Church bulletins are not sacramental, so there is no restrictions or special procedures regarding their disposal. Of course, if they have any value for evangelization, by all means distribute them whenever and wherever there is an apt opportunity.

Personally, however, I don’t think libraries will take them, nor would appreciate you leaving them behind. That would be littering.
