Recycle Your Phone Book Now through October 31

The York County Solid Waste Authority has kicked off its 19th annual phone book recycling program. Residents and businesses can recycle their outdated phone books now through October 31. Magazines and catalogs are also accepted for this program.

Phone books, magazines and catalogs will be collected at the Authority's Recycling Drop-Off Center located across from the Resource Recovery Center, 2651 Blackbridge Road, Manchester Township and in the parking lots of the South York Plaza, the West Manchester Mall, Saubel’s Market in Shrewsbury, Zeigler Park in York Haven Borough and Rutter’s Farm Store in Brogue. Phone books, magazines and catalogs may be dropped off seven days a week. Residential customers with curbside recycling may also place these items in their curbside recycling container at any time. Last year's program collected more than 65 tons of phone books.

The phone books collected will be recycled into low-grade paper products. Residents or businesses with questions about phone book recycling can call the Authority at 717-845-1066.

The Authority facilitates responsible solid waste management through an integrated strategy that emphasizes waste reduction, reuse, recycling and resource recovery. The Authority is the owner of the York County Resource Recovery Center in Manchester Township; and owns and operates a Yard Waste Transfer Facility, a Recyclable Materials Drop-off Center and an Education Center. This is the 19th year the Authority has conducted telephone book recycling.
