Green recycling scheme for Yellow Pages

Posted: 17/07/2007 18:38:50

West Oxfordshire householders are being encouraged to go green and be in with the chance of winning £50 by recycling old copies of their Yellow Pages at special banks across the District.

Designated Yellow Pages recycling banks will be set up by West Oxfordshire District Council at different locations during August and September for people to drop off their 2006/07 directory when the new 2007/08 edition is delivered to their homes.

Two lucky recyclers will be picked at random to receive £50 cash. All people have to do to be entered in the prize draw is write their name, address and telephone number on their Yellow Pages before depositing it in one of the banks.

Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: "Yellow Pages cannot be recycled through the normal weekly household recycling collections because of the dye used in its production, and that is why we are encouraging as many people as possible to drop off their old copies at these designated banks. It was a great success when we ran the scheme last year and we hope it will do even better this year."

All of the old directories will be recycled into newspapers and magazines. Last year, more than 14 tonnes - equivalent to the weight of nearly 3 elephants - of Yellow Pages were recycled as a result of the scheme.

Banks, which will be labelled with bright Yellow Pages stickers, will be available at the following locations:

Guildenford, Burford
Black Bourton Road, Carterton
Spendlove Centre, Charlbury
New Street, Chipping Norton
Back Lane, Eynsham
Reily Close, Long Hanborough
Welch Way, Witney
Hensington Road, Woodstock

The scheme is being run by the District Council with a grant from the Yellow Pages Directory Scheme.

Further information about recycling is available on the Council’s website, www.westoxon.gov.uk, or by calling 01993 861020.
