COAST 360 AND THE PAY-LESS FOUNDATION FUNDS NEW PLASTIC RECYCLING BINS FOR THE I*RECYCLE PROGRAM

Press Release

December 2016, Guam – Guam Business Partners for Recycling, Inc. (GBPRI), the non-profit that created the i*recycle program, is in the process of bringing in new plastic 6cy recycling bins to replace the metal 8cy bins that were placed at participating schools in the fall of 2007. “The original metal 8cy bins have helped to grow the i*recycle program to where we are today. It has served its purpose and we are proud to work with the business community to have them replaced,” said Mark J. Sablan of South Pacific Petroleum and President of the Guam Business Partners for Recycling Board.

The new bins cost approximately $1150 apiece, including manufacturing, trucking to the West coast, and signage. Shipping costs are covered by Matson, one of i*recycle’s partners. i*recycle will be soliciting sponsorships from local companies to assist in covering the cost of the bins. Logos of bin sponsors will be reflected in the signage on each bin. The first 12 bins have been received and are ready to be placed at 12 schools. Bins will be delivered over the next two weeks.

The Pay-Less Community Foundation donated $11,000 to i*recycle from its 2014 Kick the Fat 5K event. The proceeds were set aside to purchase new bins. The foundation’s contribution covers the cost of nine new bins. Eight of these nine bins will be placed at the eight schools that are partnering with the eight Pay-Less Supermarkets to be the recipients of the aluminum cans that are generated at Pay-Less stores. Those eight schools are Agana Heights Elementary, CL Taitano Elementary, Untalan Middle School, Tamuning Elementary, Liguan Elementary, Benavente Middle School, Simon Sanchez High School, and Southern High School.

Coast 360 Federal Credit Union is donating $5,500 to i*recycle from its most recent 5K, which will cover the cost of five new bins. The five recipient schools will be MU Lujan Elementary, Wettengel Elementary, Inarajan Middle School, John F. Kennedy High School, and Merizo Elementary.

Over the next year, i*recycle plans to bring in a total of 60 bins which will allow 60 schools to participate in the program, thus increasing the number of participating schools by 20.

Any company that is interested in sponsoring an i*recycle bin should contact Peggy Denney, program administrator, at 483-9415.

I*RECYCLE PROGRAM GENERATES NEARLY A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS FOR PARTICIPATING LOCAL SCHOOLS

I*RECYCLE PROGRAM GENERATES NEARLY  A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS FOR PARTICIPATING LOCAL SCHOOLS

January 2016, Guam – The Guam Business Partners for Recycling, under the project i*recycle, has disbursed over $225,000.00 to participating schools for their aluminum can recycling efforts.  “Our students continue to work hard to set the example for protecting our island home.  But more can be done at work, home and within our villages” says Mark J. Sablan of South Pacific Petroleum and President for The Guam Business Partners for Recycling Board.

The i*recycle program continues to educate the community on the importance of recycling aluminum cans throughout the island.  With more than forty satellite aluminum recycling bins stationed at public, private and DODEA schools, i*recycle efforts are also seen at many of our island-wide events.  Peggy Denney, Program Administrator, organizes volunteers in educating the community through events like the annual Bank of Guam IFIT 5k, Strides for the Cure 2k/5k and the Liberation Day Parade.

“I am proud of the work and progress our participating schools have accomplished,” Denney says.  “They are making a difference for our community while helping to support their school.”

By continuing to support this program Guam takes bigger steps to reduce the volume of the waste.  Recycling diverts valuable resources from landfills which in turn makes fewer landfills necessary.  Recycling valuable resources can result in cash returns – such as when aluminum is collected at schools and sold so those same schools can reinvest their well-earned funds into academic, athletic and extracurricular programs.  Recycling also reduces litter throughout the island and helps our communities to be cleaner and more welcoming for locals and visitors alike.

Proceeds from the sale of aluminum cans are divided proportionally among the schools where the cans are collected.  These disbursements were determined by the volume of cans each school had collected.  The Top 3 earning schools from i*recycle Program’s latest containers are as follows:


McCool Elementary/Middle School                $2,176.00

Agana Heights Elementary School                $1,742.67

St. John’s School                                            $1,578.39


Guam Business Partners for Recycling began the program to educate and promote recycling on an island-wide level.  The GBPR’s plan utilizes private, public and DODEA  schools as sites for aluminum can recycling bins, affording the entire community convenient access to recycling aluminum cans.

Foremost continues to provide relief for Typhoon Soudelor victims

Foremost continues to provide relief for Typhoon Soudelor victims

Additional 200 cases of non-fat and reduced fat UHT milk donated to non-profit organizations

 CHALAN LAULAU, Saipan — Foremost Foods Saipan recently donated an additional 200 cases of Foremost Non-fat and Reduced Fat UHT Milk quarts to charities that continue to serve the victims of Typhoon Soudelor. In August, the food and beverage company contributed the first 200 cases of Foremost Non-fat Milk to The Salvation Army, which used the donation for its soup kitchen.

The added 200 cases of combined non-fat and reduced fat milk in quarts had been distributed to The Salvation Army, Office on Aging, and Karidat Social Services as part of the company’s partnership with non-profit and charitable organizations that provide relief in the aftermath of Typhoon Soudelor.

Foremost Foods Saipan, Coca-Cola Beverage Co. (Micronesia) Inc. and its sister companies in the Transpacific Group, including Subway Investments Corporation, Glimpses Advertising & Publications, and Foremost Scoops, were among the first companies to provide immediate relief to the victims of Typhoon Soudelor in the critical days following the devastation brought by the typhoon.

Group Executive Vice President Marcos W. Fong, who is also chairman of American Red Cross-Guam Chapter, took the initiative to reach out to the American Red Cross-NMI Chapter as well as The Salvation Army, and mobilized company staff and material resources to assist the organizations in providing relief goods to typhoon victims.

“The destruction on Saipan saddens. Saipan is not only a place where we do business; it is home. We will harness our resources to provide what is needed to provide relief and help in the recovery of our island community. We have the capability to immediately provide assistance to those in need. While off-island relief goods are being prepared for shipment to Saipan, our supplies are already on island,” Fong said.
