Recycle your phonebooks at Oahu schools as part of Hagadone's first phonebook recycling contest.

Hagadone Printing Co. is hosting its first-ever telephone-book recycling contest for Oahu schools.

The contest is open to any school on Oahu, and will feature a first place prize of $2,500 for the school that donates the most phone books. Second place collects $1,000.

Schools must register for the contest online at www.HagadonePrinting.com/PhonebookContest or on Hagadone's Facebook page. The contest ends on Feb. 29.

Clint Schroeder, Hagadon President says: "It's extremely important that we share the values of protecting the aina with the next generation, and through this contest we can show kids they CAN make a huge positive impact."

Approximately 410,000 tons of phone books find their way to landfills or incinerators, according to the Product Stewardship Institute, costing taxpayers about $60 million each year in management costs.

Hagadone has an industrial shredder/baler system that helps the company recycle 140 tons of waste paper per month.

For more information about the contest, contact Ed Kobayashi at 852-6334 or EdK@HagadonePrinting.com.
