Give your old telephone books new life by participating in the Cityís special phone book collection program. Simply place your old phone books in your recycling cart on your regular collection day. The phone books will be taken to the Recycling Foundationís recycling processing facility where the telephone books will be sorted with other paper products and marketed for use as roofing material, home insulation and recycled paper products. Old telephone books (AT&T/The Real Yellow Pages and the Sunshine Pages) may be recycled at anytime, year-round.
Businesses with large quantities of telephone books may take them to the Recycling Foundation at 7923 Tom Drive. For apartment tenants and small business, telephone books and all other recyclables collected in the
Curbside Recycling Program are accepted at the Recycle Round Up Monthly Drop-Off held at 6945 Florida Boulevard, in the Louisiana Department of Insurance Receivership Office parking lot, located next to
Brian Harris Automotive Center, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon, on the 3rd Saturday of every month.
