It depends on the facilities at your local paper and pulp mill, but most kinds of paper and cardboard can be recycled, including pizza boxes (Make sure you have eaten all the pizza first).

Phone books, newspapers, printing paper, copy paper, drink cartons, including the ones lined with foil can all be recycled.

Waxed cardboard boxes are usually not recycled.
