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.
