Paperback books that are in good, sellable condition are accepted at locations throughout the A2 Reuse Network. Paperback books that need to be recycled are accepted in your curbside recycling bins, the Drop-Off Station, and the Recovery Yard.
Paperback books can go in your Ann Arbor curbside recycling bins, but hardback books cannot!
