[GreenYes] QUESTION ABOUT PHONE BOOK RECYCLING
QUESTION ABOUT PHONE BOOK RECYCLING
 In states where I have lived recently ( WA and AZ ), phone books require
totally separate recycling operations, so they usually don't get recycled or
they mess up the rest of the process.
Most phone books now are advertising vehicles, dropped off at everyone's
house.   We get three dropped off in our yard each year. I think that if
phone books are not recyclable with "mixed paper" or newsprint, the
producers ought to figure out how to use inks, glues, and paper that will
make them easily recycled.   Its a business that ought to be more
responsible.
What is the situation in other states? Thank you.
