Re: [GreenYes] Re:Phone book query
Pennsylvania Resources Council (PRC) is very proud to collect the
information about community recycling programs and organize it for printing
in the Verizon Phone Books. In our school and community recycling education
outreach programs, we always stress how easy it is to get the information
from the Verizon phone directories in the 6 state Mid-Atlantic area.

We'd appreciate any one who is doing recycling education to help promote
this easy to find information.  We get many calls from people vacationing
throughout the Mid-Atlantic area on the easy to find information.

By the way many residential communities still collect corrugated boxboard,
gray board, office paper, and junk mail.  Check it out in the Verizon phone
directories.
