While softcover books may be disposed of in the newspaper recycling bins, hardcover books can not be recycled this way. There are several options for getting rid of hardcover books.
First, please consider if the books might be useful to someone. You
could look within your own department, or contact Alpha Phi Omega if
you think their used book store might want them. If they are reusable
but not wanted at Rensselaer, there are places where they can be donated,
such as the Albany County Jail.
If the books are too old or otherwise unsuitable for reuse, we can recycle
them. Please send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
if you have books to recycle.
