New phone books are starting to show up and that means it's time to toss out the old ones.
Today kicks off a competition between Dougherty County Elementary Schools to collect the most books to recycle.
You can take them to any Elementary School, any City of Albany Recycling Drop off site, and any Albany or Sylvester McDonald's.
If you bring at least three phone books to McDonald's, you'll get some free French fries.
"We do it to teach our young people to recycle. We want them to recycle just like we brush our teeth," said Judy Bowles, Executive Director of Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful.
The winning school will get a five hundred dollar prize from McDonald's. The event lasts until April 13th and is sponsored by Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful.
