Ca­noe club wants your cans and cars and ev­ery­thing in be­tween

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - FRONT PAGE -


Aloha Aina Earth Day comes to Hawaii Kai from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 12, bring­ing a ma­jor re­cy­cling drive to ben­e­fit Hui Nalu Ca­noe Club.

Res­i­dents can bring all kinds of metal, paper, ap­pli­ances and old bulky things to the club’s ca­noe halau near Hawaii Kai boat dock at Mau­nalua Bay.

“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 drive. “It’s also a re­spon­si­ble way to dis­pose of these items while help­ing out a great cause.”

The re­cy­cling drive is spear­headed by lo­cal law­mak­ers and busi­nesses and co­or­di­nated by Rene Man­sho of Sch­nitzer Steel, a metal re­cy­cler that will give cash pro­ceeds from the drive to the ca­noe club.

Items sought are scrap metal, auto parts, bi­cy­cles, metal ap­pli­ances, cell phones, news­pa­pers, phone books, mag­a­zines, card­board, plas­tic bags and hang­ers, printer car­tridges, com­put­ers (one per car), lap­tops (no limit), HI5 bev­er­age con­tain­ers, green waste, eye­glasses, hear­ing aids, cook­ing oil and all kinds of bat­ter­ies. Us­able cloth­ing and house­hold items will go to Good­will In­dus­tries. Also, in­can­des­cent light bulbs can be ex­changed for CFL bulbs (two per per­son).

For free tow­ing of un­wanted cars and for roll-off bins, call Man­sho at 306-1876.
