"We are very proud supporters of America Recycles Day events and commend the efforts to promote recycling in Hawai'i," said Brenda Pulley, vice president of KHIB Recycling Programs and national program manager for ARD. "Recycling is the easiest thing we can all do to save energy, conserve natural resources and create green jobs. Collectively, through events like these, we aim to make recycling bigger and better 365 days a year."
