RE: [greenyes] book recycling -- new york


I have talked to our paper recycler about this issue and we are working
towards having a recycling day for all books, hard and soft cover. They
have a market for hard cover and soft cover books so long as they have a
tractor trailer full of them. We figure if we can get the schools
included and all the library branches along with residents we may be
able to fill a tractor trailer.

I work at a public library and we get donations of used book daily. We
use
what we can in our collection or sell them at the book sale. But most of
the
books that are donated are in poor condition that are not able to use.
We recycle
what we can, which is mainly soft cover books. Our city recycling
collection
will not take hard cover books. What can we do about this? Even the
library
has to toss books sometimes. We would rather recycle everything, but we
have no
other options. Please advise.

Hi Jason,

Our local library accepts book donations that they sell for .25 - $1 to
raise money for the library. Do you accumulate books that others might
be interested in reading? If so, you might want to see if your library
accepts books that they can resell to raise funds.
