Cayman Yellow Pages is going green, as it launches its fifth annual Yellow2Green recycling programme. The goal is to avoid sending old directories into the landfill. To date more than 150,000 directories has been saved from the dump.
The community is asked to collect its old dry books and drop them off in the designated bins, located around the island. In addition to the community coming on board schools are taking part in a friendly competition. There will be prizes for the schools, classes and individuals.
Melanie Shambaug, marketing manager of Cayman Islands Yellow Pages, says they’ve had a great response from the public, with about 50% of the books being send to recycling.
The books are collected, bundled and shipped off island where they are used to create reusable materials for insulation.
Collection will take place until 18 March for more information visit www.caymanyp.com.
