On and after January 1, 1995, all telephone directories distributed within the state shall be made from materials that will allow for the maximum volume of directories to be recycled, as determined by the board. If reasonably feasible, it is the goal of this state that existing waste paper recyclers make an effort to accept telephone directories for recycling.

For the purposes of implementing and enforcing this chapter, the board shall adopt general guidelines regarding the materials which may be used in the production of telephone directories which can and will be recycled.
