While we all hate to see a good book go to waste, even the best of books can become worn down from years of use and become in need of recycling, or are unwanted and need to be handed down. As all books contain valuable material and resources, it’s imperative that they be reused or recycled properly.
At Wasteology we work with organizations of all shapes and sizes to find innovative book recycling solutions that will help you conveniently and responsibly dispose of books. From textbooks and phone books to manuals, paper and hardback, most books are recyclable and can even be resold or donated.
Often times it is the binding glue, adhesive, cloth or string components of a book that prevents it from being recycled in mainstream recycling plants. Luckily, when it comes to finding third party book buyers who are looking for more inventory or textile salvage, the Wasteology Group is your one point of contact.
Books that cannot be resold or donated within the community can often be processed into a pulp used to make new consumer paper products. Let us help your organization with book recycling. You’ll free up shelf space and keep unwanted books out of landfills by curating a recycling program that is environmentally compliant and safe.
