How to recycle your books in Chesterfield

The Chesterfield Transfer Station has a book swap area for books in good condition but that do not meet the library guidelines above.

If books are not in good condition, they can be recycled. Paperback books can go directly into paper recycling. Hardcover books must have the covers removed. The covers can go into general trash disposal and the paper can go in recycling.
