Baltimore County Residents Encouraged to Recycle Old Telephone Books
What is the largest and heaviest single item residents look to get rid of each year? It just might be an old telephone book! As new telephone books are distributed throughout Baltimore County , the Bureau of Solid Waste Management encourages residents to recycle their old phone books. Combined, the Yellow Pages and White Pages amount to a large volume of paper, stack more than four inches high, and weigh more than eight pounds. Recycling old phone books is an easy way to reduce trash and conserve resources.

Residents in single-family homes or town homes can recycle telephone books on paper collection days in Baltimore County ’s recycling collection program. The telephone books should be placed in sturdy paper bags or cardboard boxes for collection.

Or You can place your old phone books and any old newspapers in the Paper Retriever Bin located on the parking lot at Strawberry Fields!
