 How do I recycle textbooks?

Posted on Wednesday, Jul. 9, 2008

Textbooks can be recycled along with any type of paper.  Because texbooks are quite heavy and have sharp corners, do NOT place them in blue paper recycling bags. Instead, please request a sturdy paper recycling container from Facilities.

Either call x4742, e-mail facilities-CSC@scu.edu, or place a work order through AIM.
