businesses can go green by recycling old phone books in
specially marked collection bins once a year. Please
call the Solid Waste Office for bin locations at
Modesto residents can also place old phone books in
their green "organic" waste can. This is an
easy way to recycle right from home!
Recycling telephone books into new ones helps save
precious resources. For each 500 phone books recycled,
7,000 gallons of water; 3.3 cubic yards of landfill
space; 17 to 31 trees; and 4,100 kilowatts of
electricity are saved. That's enough electricity power
an average home for 6 months!
