Other Options


We have a Better World Drop Box in our Van Alstyne parking lot. If it is full, please text or call the number on the box and let them know. If it is full, please do not leave books outside of the drop box. Better World Books will try to sell the books first, and recycle what can not be sold. 


Looking to recycle? Our Paper Bin is located on Vinewood. You can recycle both hardcover, softcover books, magazines, and newspapers here.
