You can now drop off your phonebooks to be recycled. The Pueblo-City County Health Department announced on Monday that phonebook recycling will now be available until September 30.

The health department is partnering with C&C Disposal and Dex DirectoryTM to provide six public drop-off locations in the City and County.

Here is a list of the different locations:

-C&C Disposal, 21 Magneto, Pueblo West

-Colorado Mental Health Institute-Pueblo Campus, near the soccer field off W. 24th St.

-Girls Scouts of Pueblo Office, 21 Montebello Avenue

-Mesa La Gree’s Market, 27050 Hwy 50 East

-Pueblo West Library, 298 Joe Martinez Boulevard, Pueblo West

Look for a brown dumpster outside each location with a Dex Phonebook recycling banner attached.

In a press release, DEX says that phonebooks are both recyclable and manufactured with a high percentage of recycled content. Not only can it make more directories, but also they can be recycled into insulation, drywall and other products.
