TIME TO RECYCLE THOSE PHONEBOOKS

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 19, 2002) - The Jefferson County Waste Management District and the City of Louisville Solid Waste Management and Services, announced that businesses can recycle last year's "Real White Pages" telephone directories by bringing them to one of three special recycling drop-offs. Directories may be dropped off from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, from March 19 through April 27, at the following locations: the parking lot of Wal-Mart, 1915 S. Hurstbourne Pkwy. Jefferson County Recycling Center #2, 3520 Newburg Road; and the City of Louisville Firehouse at 1500 S. Sixth St.

Businesses that have 25 directories or less, as well as households, may take their directories to any City or County Recycling Center. Residents of the City of Louisville may place their directories in their curbside recycling bins.

The new "Real White Pages" will replace nearly 600,000 old directories and are currently being distributed to businesses and homes in the city and county. At 2.78 pounds each, recycling the directories is a great way to divert material from the waste stream, thus reducing hauling and disposal costs. The directories are recycled into new telephone book stock, newsprint or insulation.

Sponsors of the Recycling Program, which has collected over 3,000 tons of directories since 1992, include Jefferson County, the City of Louisville, Wal-Mart, Waste Management of KY, Inc., and Industrial Disposal Services, Inc.
