Lucy, we use Mount Scrap, a local recycling company, for all of our
recycling needs.  We simply remove the hard covers (which are trashed)
and they take everything else. We don't even have to remove staples from

Subject: [SERIALST] recycling bound journals

We are preparing for a major journal removal project - space driven,

We are in Staunton, Virginia, Shenandoah Valley.

Does anyone in our area know a company that would recycle bound journals

We hope to sell, give away, or recycle rather than just send these to
the dump.  Unfortunately, a lot are JSTOR titles which regular backfile
dealers no longer want.

Thanks for any suggestions from the local libraries.
