Project ReDirectory 2013 Winners Announced!
During the 2.5 month collection period, participating Tuscaloosa schools collected more than 25,000 phone books (that's over 31,000 pounds!) These phone books were recycled and kept out of local landfills. The city of Tuscaloosa's Environmental Services Department wishes to thank teachers, students, parents, and local businesses who supported our local schools, collected phone books and continue to help us Keep Tuscaloosa Clean & Green!
"YP wishes to thank our friends with the City of Tuscaloosa for allowing us to participate in this wonderful school phone book recycling challenge. At YP, we are committed to economic prosperity, social responsibility and environmental stewardship. We believe that a successful business is dependent on a healthy environment and a strong community. And of course, a special thanks to this year’s winning Schools and students." - Jim Troup, YP Project ReDirectory Environmental Manager
