New phone books are being distributed, so here's a reminder from the city about how to get rid of your old directories.
In a word, recycle. The simplest way is to just put them out in your curbside recycling bin.
Josephine Valencia, the city's waste disposal manager, asks that residents remove any plastic bags, magnets or other attachments before recycling.
Residents can also recycle the directories in the mixed-paper containers at any of these city drop-off centers. All except the last one on the list are open 24 hours:
