You might try some of the various libraries which were devastated by
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, in coastal areas of Texas, Louisiana, or
Many of them lost major amounts of their collections of all types of
materials. They can buy current items to rebuild their collections, but
older editions would be harder for them to find, and they might be
thrilled to receive these items.

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
dump.  Unfortunately, a lot are JSTOR titles which regular backfile
no longer want.

Thanks for any suggestions from the local libraries.
