Phonebook Recycling Kicks Off
Berry Company News Release
The Berry Company, LLC, proud publisher of the Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages, is partnering with schools on the islands of Hawaii, Kauai, Lanai, Maui and Molokai to launch “Think Yellow, Go Green,” the company’s annual environmental awareness and recycling campaign. The seventh annual program kicked off on Earth Day, April 22, through the end of May, and runs concurrent to the 2015 Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages directory delivery on the neighbor islands.
Local schools on each island will compete to collect the most outdated telephone directories, which will keep the directories out of landfills through recycling. The schools have the opportunity to win cash prizes for their students’ participation in the program, and award amounts vary based on the school’s location.
After the close of the school contest, the collected outdated telephone directories will be recycled, and Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages are 100 percent recyclable. Recycling and environmental sustainability are important initiatives year round, so residences and businesses throughout Hawaii should check with their local recycling department for more information on recycling programs offered in their area.
For more information about the recycling program, including drop-off locations and hours, as well as a list of the participating schools and food banks, visit ThinkYellowGoGreen.com.
