Whether you’ve finally decided to part with your high school biology book from 1998 or that paperback romance novel you’ve read so many times it’s barely holding together and missing a few pages… You can recycle that! Just be careful which type you toss in the bin.
Sioux Falls Book Recycling:
Paperback (Soft Cover) books are accepted right in your single stream recycling bin (phonebooks, paper back novels, workbooks, etc). Just make sure there is no spiral or metal binding, if so, remove that part and throw it in the trash. Only include the softcover and paper pages of the book. Our recycling equipment will automatically sort this out with other paper to be baled and sent off to be made into a new paper product (If you have large quantities, please see below for drop off details).
Have something else you’re not sure about? Use our handy Where Do I Take This tool to search the database of local places you can recycle almost anything! If you don’t see what you’re looking for, just ask us! We love to hear your questions and if it’s not listed in our database, your questions help us add it to the list for others to see.
