Recycling Telephone Directories

Locations for recycling telephone directories:

  • Take your phone books to the corner of Gadsden and Greene Street and place in the bin labeled for telephone directories.

    Only phone books may go into the collection bin. Please do not place magazines, white paper or newspaper in the bin.

    The annual phone book recycling drive is held annually in February and March. The collection bin will be in place on Gadsden St. through March 31st.

  • Call 777-WORK (9675 or 4217) and place a work order to have your telephone books picked up.

    Please do not call the work order desk if you only have one phone book to pick up. We request a quantity of ten or more before placing a work order.

These books can be recycled to make more newsprint, ceiling tiles, textbook covers, insulation, and envelopes for your telephone bills.
