Project aims to keep phone books out of landfills

The 2012 Yellow Pages directories are making their way to businesses and homes this month. This means it’s also time to decide what to do with the old books.

In an effort to keep the directories out of landfills,¬†Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages and publisher¬†The Berry Company have joined forces with a recycling campaign called, “Think Yellow, Go Green.”

In a released statement, Ray Carulli, client services regional director of The Berry Company in Oahu, said, “We are extremely pleased with the level of local participation in our recycling campaigns and encourage the community to drop off their outdated directories at local malls.”

Volunteers from the Lokahi Giving Project will staff the drop off locations from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday for the following consecutive weekends:

Jan. 20-22

Jan. 27-29

Feb. 3-5

Feb. 10-12

Drop off locations on Oahu are Ward Centers, Windward Mall, Kahala Mall and Town Center of Mililani.

At the end of the campaign, West Oahu Aggregate, a specialist in waste management, will transport the old directories for recycling.

To arrange a bulk pick-up, call 833-2018.
