HTC will host a Green Fair and promote green initiatives on April 18 at Highway 501 store.

HTC will host a Green Fair and Earth Month celebration on Thursday, April 18, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the HTC store on Highway 501 across from HGTC. HTC, along with other environmentally savvy companies such as the Horry County Solid Waste Authority and Santee Cooper, will present educational programs and provide information about green initiatives at this special event in honor of Earth Month. Everyone is invited to join in the celebration.

Visitors to the Green Fair will be able to:

•Drop off old telephone directories and cell phones for recycling and receive coupons from Wendy’s, Auntie Anne’s, Medieval Times and MyrtleBeachFamilyGolf.com,
•Sign up for paperless billing and be entered to win a $500 HTC gift certificate,
•Visit booths set up by recycling partners and other organizations to learn about green initiatives, and
•Drop off sensitive documents for FREE onsite shredding by Cintas.

There will also be a FREE gift for the first 100 customers, live band and refreshments, FREE HTC Wireless Activation and 25% off accessories, a prize drawing for a FREE HTC Home Security system and a guitar autographed by Billy Currington as well as special appearances by local mascots.

“HTC cares about the environment and is taking action to lessen its environmental impact through several new and existing initiatives including paperless billing, directory and cell phone recycling, recycling bin usage and paper bags,” said Tom Vitt, HTC Director of Marketing. “The purpose of the Green Fair is to encourage recycling and promote green initiatives that are easy to implement in any home or office.”

Here are the details regarding green initiatives at HTC:

Paperless Billing Save a stamp. Save a check. Save $2.
HTC encourages customers to migrate from paper bills to electronic bills. Although HTC customers have been able to manage and view bills online for several years now, HTC is encouraging customers to go completely paperless by paying their bills using bank draft. This saves customers stamps and time. Paperless statements are convenient and clutter-free. Customers that sign up for automatic bank draft and paperless billing receive a $2 monthly credit for 12 months following enrollment and an automatic entry into the quarterly random drawing for a $500 HTC gift certificate. Customers are a click away from savings at My Account on http://www.htcinc.net.

Some of the benefits of paperless billing include:

r.A chance to win a $500 HTC gift certificate every quarter.
r.Receive monthly credit of $2 for up to 12 months.
r.Receive monthly email notification when statements are available for online viewing.
r.View, download or print the same information online that’s on a paper statement.
r.View old statements – up to 18 months – free of charge.
r.Help the environment by cutting down on paper.
r.Reduce mail and paper clutter at home.

Some of the benefits of automatic bank draft include:

•Save time with no more writing checks, buying stamps, etc.
•Safe, secure and confidential.

Directory and Cell Phone Recycling
HTC has taken a leadership role in reducing its eco-footprint with annual directory and cell phone recycling efforts in the spring. Since 1998, 732 tons of directories have been recycled and more than 21,000 cell phones have been recycled in the last nine years instead of going into landfills. As a result of the recycling programs, HTC has contributed more than $127,000 to public and private schools in Horry and Georgetown Counties over the past 14 years.

Recycling Bins Company-wide
HTC encourages employees to be environmentally responsible by placing recycling bins throughout the organization for paper and plastic waste. Employees are also conservative with energy by turning off lights and powering down computers when not in use.

Paper Bags
HTC has transitioned from plastic bags to paper bags that are 100% recyclable and biodegradable. Customers receive paper bags instead of plastic bags when purchasing cell phones, accessories, DVRs and other equipment.
