I wanted to give publicity to the Aloha Aina recycling event June 12, Saturday, 8 AM - 2 PM, because it is a good cause for the Hawaii Kai community. The drop off will be the Hui Nalu halau, which is located next to the Hawaii Kai boat ramp off of Kalanianaole Highway. Items brought for recycling will be redeemed by Hui Nalu Canoe Club and proceeds will go toward helping the club.
As reported in the reader-submitted content in the Honolulu Advertiser, you can recycle many items, including but not limited to:
· cellular phones
· printer cartridges
· scrap metal
· plastic bags
· used eye glasses
· hearing aids
· telephone books
· computers (limit one per car)
· usable clothing/household items
· cooking oil
· unwanted cars
For cars that aren't running, call 306-1876 for free towing.
Note: Certain items will not be accepted including:
· recreational vehicles (RVs)
· hazardous fluids
· microwave ovens
· motor oil
"Aloha Aina is a great opportunity to clean out your garage, your closets, your attic and to rid your business of old equipment that's been collecting dust," said Cathy Ho, a coach at Hui Nalu who is helping organize the event. "It's also a responsible way to dispose of these items while helping out a great cause."
