Recycle Bread bags

Question

I am wondering if bread bags can be recycled as paper? I am talking about the thick paper bags that bread is sold in, not the bags with the plastic window. These bags seem very thick and I wonder if there is wax on them, and if this is a problem for recycling. I live in Brussels. Thanks!

From the archives

In my commune (not in Brussels) we are told to use the bread bags to put food waste in before putting them in the food waste side of the wheelie bin. The collected food waste goes to a anaerobic digester.
