Bring new or used books to the Recycling Center community shelves. We periodically thin the shelves and donate textbooks, encyclopedias, and out of date books to More Than Words. Books in poor condition are accepted for recycling in the container #3 with other paper.
Three-ring binders in good condition are accepted at the Recycling Center and are available for reuse.
These organizations also accept book donations:
