HI-5 Recycling Hits All Time High For Hawaii

Environmental Expert is reporting that Hawaii has hit an all time high of 72% returns on HI-5 Beverage Containers.

….The state says this means more than 680 million containers were recycled from July 1, 2007 to June 30, 2008. State law requires that if more than 70 percent of containers are recycled there would be an increase in the container recycling fee (this cover costs of collection and sorting), but the director of health decided to waive the fee increase (it’s currently one cent per container)….

Still no report on how many people are recycling toilet paper rolls ;)
