EWA BEACH (KHNL) - If you are tired of looking at your old phone books piling up, now is the time to load them up and take them to a convenient recycling center. Hawaiian Telcom is launching it's annual phone book recyling program on Oahu, and students at Ilima Intermediate School in Ewa Beach are doing their part to help out.
With the help of the Civic Club, all of these old phone books have been collected for recycling.
The old books are loaded on to carts, and carried out to a special recycling bin donated by All Rolloff Services.
"This year, we decided to do it more as a centralized location to make it a little easier so we are testing that this year, as you can see the kids behind us, are still invovled so we still want to encourage that," said Ron Montgomery, Directories Manager.
"It's really valuable because you can save all the trees and fishes because people throw into the ocean," said student Cheyne Bulseco.
Besides Ilima Intermediate School, there are also two other convenient drop off locations. They include Benajmin Parker Elementary School in Kaneohe and Hawaiian Telcom's baseyard in Mapunapuna.
