Mauka Recycling To Support Boy Scouts
Aloha Aina Earth Day comes to the Mililani Mauka Park and Ride from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday as a cleanup effort and benefit for Boy Scout Troop 32.
Residents are urged to bring all kinds of metal, paper, appliances and old bulky things to the Ukuwai Street site. Items accepted include scrap metal, auto parts, bicycles, metal appliances, car parts, air conditioners, newspaper, cardboard, HI5 beverage containers, cell phones, printer cartridges, phone books, green waste, cooking oil, computers (one per car), plastic bags and hangers, eyeglasses and hearing aides, and car batteries. Usable clothing and household items will go to Goodwill Industries.
The drive is supported by politicians and businesses and coordinated by Rene Mansho of Schnitzer Steel, a metal recycler that will give cash proceeds from the drive to the Scouts. Involved are U.S. Rep. Neil Abercrombie, Mayor Mufi Hannemann, city councilmen Donovan Dela Cruz and Nestor Garcia, state Sen. Michelle Kidani and state Reps. Marilyn Lee and Ryan Yamane.
For curbside pickups, call Mansho at 306-1876 or Bobby Balais at 352-2761. For free car towing ( by appointment only), call Mansho.
