Hardcover Books


Hardcover books and textbooks have a glue binding and heavy backer-board which cannot be recycled with other types of paper. Books must be kept separate, and sent to a facility which chops off the bindings and hard covers one at a time.

Send small quantities of books in Campus Mail envelopes to:

UVM Recycling Office
284 East Avenue

Larger quantities of books will be picked up by UVM Recycling staff by special request. Submit a Physical Plant Service Request to have these items picked up.
