I came home to find a neatly tied bag of phone books in my driveway. How can I recycle my old ones?
Remember when we had to take our old phone books to recycling drop-off points? Today, recycling those phone books is as easy as dropping them into our wheeled paper recycling carts! Those of us without carts may bundle them with our other paper recyclables for convenient curbside collection.
Well, that takes care of the books, but there's still the matter of the plastic bag in which they were delivered...
Reusing the plastic bag is the best choice. It's just a little larger than a grocery bag, and ties easily. So, it would make a nice trash can liner, for example. If you prefer to recycle it, just add it to the plastic bag collection at a nearby grocery store.
Now, I'm off to make that drop into my wheeled cart (after removing items like advertising magnets, and hidden goodies, like pressed leaves...)...
