Do you have an old phone book?

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - An old phone book you want throw out? One local organization says wait before you toss it in the trash. 

Today through Sunday the Discovery Science Place is encouraging residents to bring in old phonebooks, magazines, newspapers and even cell phones. In return you'll get discounted or free admission. 

During this recycle event you can also buy recycled items for back to school, like pencils and rulers.

"We try to recycle and reuse and reduce as much as possible because that is very good for the environment and Discovery Science place as a science center organization that's really important to us and for our children in the future," said Vel Williamson, Discovery Science Place's Deputy Executive Director. 

They also have new phone books that you will receive when you come in with your recycled items.
