Some School Re­cy­cling Bins Ac­tive

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - Central Oahu Sports -

De­spite a can­celled con­tract with the city in June, Honolulu Dis­posal Ser­vice will con­tinue to main­tain its fa­mil­iar white re­cy­cling bins at many schools and park sites across the is­land — although pro­ceeds will no longer go to the host schools.

The in­crease in the num­ber and use of the city’s blue curb­side bins has dras­ti­cally re­duced the use of the com­mu­nity bins, ac­cord­ing to city re­cy­cling co­or­di­na­tor Suzanne Jones. For now, how­ever, Cen­tral Oahu res­i­dents may still dis­pose of many items at bins on the fol­low­ing cam­puses: Mililani Mauka, Haleiwa, Sun­set Beach and Wa­ialua ele­men­tary schools, and Mililani High and Wheeler Mid­dle schools, and two sites on the BYUH cam­pus in Laie. Th­ese have been the most vi­able sites, HDS of­fi­cials have stated, and will re­main open as long as it can break even on costs.

The bins ac­cept card­board, pa­per, and clean alu­minum, glass and plas­tic con­tain­ers. For de­tails, go to opala.org, call 7683200 or email info@opala.org.
