Where can I recycle my phone books?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

Phone books are fully recyclable. All curbside recycling programs accept phone books as mixed waste paper. In communities without curbside recycling pick up, local recycling depots will accept them along with other mixed paper products. If the phone book is wrapped in any plastic, please remove this packaging before recycling the phone book.

Call the RCBC Recycling Hotline for more information on recycling phone books in your community.
