Waikele Re­cy­cling Drive April 26

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - West Oahu Islander -

A com­mu­nity re­cy­cling drive is planned for 9 a.m.1 p.m. April 26 at Waikele El­e­men­tary School, where canned food also will be ac­cepted for Hawaii Food­bank, along with an un­lim­ited num­ber of res­i­den­tial and commercial com­put­ers and e-waste — and one TV set per car.

Pro­ceeds from re­demp­tion fees will ben­e­fit the school.

The Go­ing Green drive, co­or­di­nated by Rene Man­sho, wel­comes all kinds of metal, bi­cy­cles, ap­pli­ances, HI-5 con­tain­ers, cook­ing oil, cell phones, print­ers and car­tridges, bat­ter­ies, fire ex­tin­guish­ers and propane tanks (max­i­mum of three), pet food and sup­plies, prom dresses, busi­ness suits and white socks (for Afghanistan).

“Ev­ery­thing is re­cy­cled,” Man­sho said, “and noth­ing goes to the land­fill.”

Good­will and Lions clubs can use cloth­ing, house­hold items, hear­ing aids and eye­glasses. Par­tic­i­pants also can swap in­can­des­cent light bulbs for CFLs.

The drive can­not ac­cept tires, paint, microwave ovens, wood or bulky items, mo­tor oil, haz­ardous flu­ids, card­board, paper or plas­tics.

For curb­side pickup, call Jenise Coc­son at 677-6100; for free tow­ing of un­wanted cars and fur­ther de­tails on the com­mu­nity drive, call Man­sho at 291-6151.
