PHONE BOOK RECYCLING— If you’re looking for a way to dispose of your old phone books, the Cleveland Metroparks can help.

Until Sept. 30, old or unwanted telephone books can be recycled at 12 Metroparks locations in the dark green collection containers. Nearby sites include the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, 3900 Wildlife Way, Cleveland, in the hippo parking lot; Huntington Reservation on Lake Road in Bay Village, in the overflow parking lot and the Rocky River Reservation, Cedar Point Road, North Olmsted, grist mill parking lot.

Cristie Snyder, program officer for the Metroparks, said this is the largest phone book recycling program in the state, with an estimated 15 million pounds of phone recycled since 1993. The books are recycled into low-grade paper products like paper towel tubes and gypsum board.
