The Berry Company collected nearly 50,000 lbs. of outdated telephone directories for recycling in Lincoln, Nebraska through the sixth-annual Think Yellow, Go Green program.
The Cornhusker Council Boy Scouts, Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department and Recycling Enterprises of Nebraska, Inc. partnered with Berry on the month-long campaign, which encourages the local community to recycle their outdated directories.
The nearly 50,000 lbs. of outdated telephone directories, which were collected door-to-door by the Cornhusker Council Boy Scouts and dropped off by local residents at several parks and recreation centers in Lincoln, will be recycled and converted into reusable materials by Recycling Enterprises of Nebraska.
