Recyle Old Phone Books & Paper

From: http://www.eastgr.org/

The 2010 phone books are arriving all over town and that means residents are looking for places to get rid of the old ones.  Many years ago, the City has arranged for a recycling dumpster to be temporarily placed on City property, but we now urge residents to support their local schools by using the Paper Gator recycling program!

If you haven't already been using the Paper Gator dumpsters, here's how it works: Paper Gator Recycling of Byron Center places green dumpsters around the area at schools and churches for the community to use for recycling many different kinds of paper.  The dumpsters are emptied regularly, and the non-profit organizations are paid by weight for all the paper collected.

There are currently three Paper Gator dumpsters at East Grand Rapids School Buildings, and the Schools are welcoming your old phone books (and any other recyclable paper you'd like to donate).
