Remember to recycle
your old phone books after the new phone books arrive at your home and/or business.
Residents can set out phone books with all other paper products such as newspapers, magazines, junk mail, and cardboard that are collected at the curb or centralized container.
Don't include the plastic bag the phone book comes in

Businesses should check with their recycling hauler for collection options, or they can check with companies such as Rock-Tenn in Saint Paul or International Paper in New Brighton to set up a collection system.
