Recycle Phonebooks At Waikele

Old telephone directories can be recycled this weekend at Waikele Center on Lumiaina Street.

Volunteers for the “Think Yellow, Go Green” promotion will be on hand to assist customers from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, the final weekend of the drive. Directories from any publisher will be accepted, although Berry Company and Hawaiian Telcom are sponsors of the annual drive.

Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages also offers a pro-active program to avoid disposal of printed phone-books. Yellow Pages Your Way allows consumers to opt out of print directories and choose a CD or electronic downloadable version. For more details on this approach, visit

Kahala Mall (across from Macy’s) and Windward Mall in Kaneohe also have collection bins on the same dates. For bulk pickup, call 833-2018.

West Oahu Aggregate provides the recycling containers and will haul the phonebooks to HPOWER, where they will be burned and will generate megawatts of energy for HECO.
