Books & Media

Recycling: Recycle your paperback books with mixed paper and cardboard. CDs, DVDs, vinyl records, disks, and CD and DVD cases can be placed with your metal, glass, plastic, and carton recycling.

Garbage: Discard hard cover books with your regular trash. Cassettes and VHS tapes are problematic to recycle, so place in your regular trash.
