Pasco schools have GreenFiber recycling bins


Schools have bins to recycle phone books

When new phone books start arriving soon, you can wait for RESORCE recycling club's annual phone book drive, which is slated for July at two Port Richey businesses, to recycle the old ones. Or toss them into the GreenFiber recycling bins at 48 Pasco schools. These recycling containers, which are available to the public, accept phone books and other paper products such as: brown paper bags, cardboard, cereal boxes, construction paper, gift wrap, magazines, newspaper, paper, and phone books. (No glass, metal, plastic bottles, plastic bags, aluminum, string or foam.) To find schools with GreenFiber containers, visit and click on the link that says "New! Community Paper Recycling Program." RESORCE, which collected 17 tons of phone books in last year's recycling drive, has partnered with the Pasco School District to expand phone book recycling. The recycling club will hold its annual phone book drive in July at Accurate Waste Systems and Stop-n-Play.
