Thread: recycling phone books?

    Does that mean it was a waste of time to take old newspapers to the recycling neighborhood bins, if it just goes to HPower? Might as well just throw those old newspapers in the regular trash.

    I think the type of paper has something to do with it. I guess there's a market for recycled newsprint, not so much of a market for recycling the phone books.

    The question of should we send our newsprint to HPower rather then send it off-island to recycle is a good one.

    I believe there's little market for recycling any kind of paper at the moment. Prices have plummeted.

    I was the City's recycling program publicist 10 years ago and they did not want to tell the public to stop recycling when prices collapsed, as they have now.

    They felt it made it too complicated for the public...

    I proudly admit that when I saw your reply, Tutu, I thought your "bust" link would lead to this thread!
    IIRC, that was the only thread she participated in. Welcome back, Diane!

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    Uh, so where does Oahu's recycled paper currently go?
