Reusing your books is always the best option, but when the cover falls off and the pages become torn, it might be time to say goodbye. Make sure to recycle your paperback books. You never know; maybe they'll be reincarnated as a romance novel!

What about hard-back books?

Hard-back books have additional structures inside and more adhesives to hold everything together. If they aren't in good enough condition to be reused, it's best to throw them in the trash. However, if you can tear the cover and binding off the book, you can recycle the pages inside (just not the cover). Keep in mind that we aren't responsible for your strained muscles, Hulk Hogan!
