Recycle That Phone Book!


Rather than throwing away last year’s phone book, recycle it in your blue bin designated for paper – along with newspapers, magazines, junk mail, paperboard (e.g. cereal boxes) and flattened cardboard.  Phone books can also be recycled at the Shawmut Avenue Transfer Station located at 1103 Shawmut Avenue.

Every resident’s participation in the recycling program makes a difference.  By recycling paper and cans & bottles, residents help to prolong the life of the Crapo Hill Landfill, New Bedford’s waste disposal site.  These recyclables earn revenue that has been used to purchase an assortment of items including recycling bins, black mesh litter baskets, various equipment (a tractor, two packer trucks and a trash compactor), educational materials, and improvements at the transfer station (new signage, new doors and paving).  Residents can help to further enhance the City’s recycling and solid waste services by recycling as much as possible.
