BRIEF: Schools seek out phone books
ADA, Feb 03, 2013 (Ada Evening News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
If you're wondering whether to recycle your old phone books or toss them out, the Ada Recycling Coalition has the answer.
The coalition is sponsoring its 15th annual phone book collection contest this spring. Students at participating schools have already begun collecting old directories and will deliver them between 9 a.m. and noon April 20 to the Ada Recycling Center, 326 E. 12th St.
The coalition will recycle the phone books along with other paper items, secretary Trudy Nevland said.
The winning classroom at each participating school will receive money for a pizza party, and the school that collects the most phone books will win $150.
Seven schools collected 4,836 phone books for recycling in last year's contest, Nevland said. Ten schools competed for bragging rights in 2011, and 15 participated in 2008.
Roff Elementary School won the contest all three years, Nevland said. The school turned in 1,486 phone directories last year, 2,015 in 2011 and 3,928 in 2008.
For more information, call Nevland at 436-8100 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
