Looking for a way to recycle your old phone books? 

The City of Mesa Solid Waste Management Department has a simple solution for you...simply toss them into your blue barrel along with all your other recyclables.  That's all there is to it!


Businesses with blue barrels may also place their old phone books into their recycling containers.  All other businesses and large users of telephone books should contact the Arizona Center for the Blind at (602) 267-8740 or Friedman Recycling at (602) 269-9324 for recycling options.
