Remove Magnets Before Recycling
Phone books often come with magnets, which are not recyclable. Make sure to remove these magnets before placing a phone book in paper recycling.
Dispose of Plastic Bags Separately
Many phone books are delivered in plastic bags to protect them from rain damage. Make sure to dispose of the bag with other plastic bags.
Ways to Reduce
Opt Out of Yellow Pages
If your phone book sees little use, consider opting out of receiving one altogether. Do so by visiting the National Yellow Pages opt-out site.
Ways to Reuse
Create a Phone Book Safe
Hide money and other small valuables in a phone book. To create a phone book safe, take a box cutter and cut out a rectangle from the middle.
