Do you have a school or district weeding policy?  In my district we have to
turn our weeded books into the district and they dispose of them from there.

If you have books with great illustrations you might consider keeping a
collage pile for the art teacher or anyone else who used to ask for
magazines.

You can also contact Better World Books (www.betterworldbooks.com) which is
a free book recycling program.
