MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - NEWS - By CAROL CHANG

Aloha Aina Earth Day comes to Kaimuki High School for the sev­enth year Satur­day, thanks to a part­ner­ship of busi­nesses and cit­i­zens who want to clean up and re­cy­cle use­ful items for the com­mu­nity.

Res­i­dents can bring all kinds of metal, paper, ap­pli­ances and old bulky things to the school park­ing lot from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. For those need­ing curb­side pickup, call state Rep. Scott Nishi­moto at 586-8515 or Rene Man­sho at 306-1876.

The re­cy­cling drive is spear­headed and co­or­di­nated by Man­sho of Sch­nitzer Steel, a Camp­bell In­dus­trial Park metal recy- cler that, with other in­dus­trial and govern­ment part­ners, will give its cash pro­ceeds from the drive to Kaimuki High School and the Ka­pahulu and Moili­ili com­mu­nity cen­ters.

Items sought are metal scrap and ap­pli­ances, auto parts, bi­cy­cles, metal ap­pli­ances, lawn­mow­ers, news­pa­per, card­board, HI-5 bev­er­age con­tain­ers, green waste, cook­ing oil, used eye­glasses, all kinds of bat­ter­ies, cell phones, printer car­tridges, phone books, e-waste, plas­tic bags, hang­ers and bot­tle caps; and un­lim­ited com­put­ers, prin­ters and scan­ners.

Us­able cloth­ing and house­hold items will go to Good­will In­dus­tries, eye­glasses will go to Hawaii Lions clubs, and canned goods will go to Hawaii Food­bank.

Res­i­dents may also ex­change one in­can­des­cent light bulb for two CFLs.

Law­mak­ers in­volved are state Reps. Nishi­moto and Scott Saiki, House Speaker Calvin Say, for­mer U. S. Rep. Neil Aber­crom­bie and City Coun­cil­woman Ann Kobayashi, along with Kaimuki High JROTC Maj. Dou­glas Thomas and the Kaimuki Lions Club.
