You could throw your old phone books in the trash and hope they will be recycled.  But the city of Lubbock has a more precise suggestion.

In a news release, the city is urging you to take the phone books to the city’s two permanent drop-off locations.

On the northside, the drop-off spot is at 208 Municipal Drive.  On the southside go to 1631 84th Street.

Telephone books will be accepted from January 17 through March 1, Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
