I have so far 2 yellow pages and 2 phonebooks, they are updated every year or two. Most of them are made with recycled paper already, and many times they offer to recycle them or you just have to deliver them to a paper recycling bank.
Yellow Pages opt out recommends:
- Check your local phone book for recycling information, usually in the front or back
- If curbside recycling is offered in your community, you will likely have the ability to recycle Yellow Pages directories by putting them in your curbside bin
- If curbside recycling is not an option, visit your county’s solid waste department’s Web site for recycling information
- Contact your local Yellow Pages publisher for phone book recycling drop-off locations
If you, on the other hand, have one or two (maybe more) but want a creative way to reuse them, then continue reading and find some ideas:
