DO your bit for the environment by recycling your old Yellow Pages.

That is the message of a recycling campaign that gets underway when the new edition of Yellow Pages is delivered shortly.

Suffolk Coastal District Council is hoping to beat last year's impressive collection of nearly 14 tonnes of old directories.

The campaign has been boosted by a grant from The Directory Recycling Scheme, sponsored by Yellow Pages, which offers householders the chance to win £25 in shopping vouchers.

To enter people should put their name and address inside the front cover of the old directory before putting it in a recycling bin. Winners will be drawn at random.

Special Yellow Pages recycling banks have been set up at Solar, on Hamilton Road, Felixstowe; Woodbridge Community Hall, on Station Road; Tesco, on Ropes Drive, Kesgrave; Saxmundham Market Place, off the High Street; High Street car park in Leiston; and Fort Green, Aldeburgh.

Chris Slemmings, cabinet member for the environment, said: "Last year the people of this district once again showed their commitment to protecting the environment and recycling by putting a staggering 13.74 tonnes of old directories into our special banks and I hope this year it will be even more."
