Guam - GTA TeleGuam has launched its Phonebook Roundup Recycling Program for the fourth straight year for all public, private and federal schools on Guam. Marketing communication specialist Michele Catahay says schools have until March 31 to collect as many outdated phonebooks to be used as filler and mulching.
"So what we're doing is that all the phone books that we collect, they're going to be shredded and then they're going to be turned into recyclable materials that way we can give it to the farmers," Catahay said.
The top 15 schools who collect the most phonebooks will win cash prizes with the top collector receiving a three thousand dollar cash prize as well. The program is in partnership with the iRecycle, Soil and Water Conservation Northern District, the Department of Agriculture and the Chamorro Land Trust Commission. GTA hopes to exceed last year's count of 50,000 and encourages those in the community to participate by donating to their school of choice.
