Think Yellow, Go Green Recycling Program Deadline Extended

Hawaii, Molokai and Maui Community Encouraged to Continue Recycling Outdated Directories

HILO, HI and KAHULUI, HI and KAUNAKAKAI, HI--(Marketwire - May 26, 2011) -

WHAT:
Due to the continued interest in the Think Yellow, Go Green Recycling Program, The Berry Company ("Berry"), publisher of the Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages, has extended the collection deadline for this year's Think Yellow, Go Green telephone directory recycling program on Hawaii's Neighbor Islands to June 15, with the exception of Maui, which will extend through June 9.

The program, which kicked off on Earth Day, April 22, as a recycling contest between schools on the Neighbor Islands was set to close May 27. The recent distribution of the new 2011 Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages sparked a renewed interest among island residents to recycle their outdated directories.

"The schools on Hawaii's Neighbor Islands have done an excellent job of kicking off this year's Think Yellow, Go Green Recycling Program and generating interest in the community," said Pat Nichols, senior director of corporate communications for Berry. "We look forward to awarding the prize money for the schools that have collected the most outdated directories so far. However, we want to extend the program deadline to provide residents with more time to recycle their outdated directories."

With most Hawaii schools preparing for summer break, residents of Hawaii Island, Maui and Molokai can drop off outdated telephone directories directly to the recycler on their island, rather than at participating area schools. Residents of Hawaii Island can drop off outdated telephone directories to Orchid Island Rubbish and Recycling; Molokai residents to Makoa Trucking and Maui residents to Maui Disposal. Residents of Kauai can drop off outdated directories to any of the Kauai Recycles Drop Bins distributed throughout the island. Details for drop-off locations on Hawaii Island, Maui and Molokai are listed below.
