Most book lovers hate to see a book wasted. However, at some point in a book’s life, they become non-resalable and their use at it’s end. This is the time to recycle them. Books are made of natural materials and will eventually break down, even if you throw them in the trash. But the process takes years, even longer for hardback books. Please consider recycling for them, so they can serve a new purpose.
