Reynolds Recycling centers closed over delayed state payments

All 35 Reynolds Recycling centers in the state are closed on Thursday because the state is behind on payments to the island's largest beverage container recycler.

Bruce Iverson, the Director of Marketing and Development for Reynolds Recycling, said the redemption centers will reopen as soon as the state pays the company.

Gary Gill, deputy director of environmental health for the state Department of Health, said:  "Our payment to recyclers is usually made within 10 days of receiving a proper claim. This month, the payment to Reynolds was delayed by a few days.  We expect to make the payment by the end of this week, still well within the 30-day payment schedule provided by law."

For the past 10 years under the state's HI-5 recycling program, Reynolds pays consumers for the cans and bottles they recycle and the company turns to the state for reimbursement.
