Aloha Aina Earth Day comes to Kapolei High School from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Satur­day, of­fer­ing un­lim­ited col­lec­tion of com­put­ers and e-waste, as well as a wide va­ri­ety of other items.

The Dec. 4 drive is also a fundraiser for the school and an op­por­tu­nity to clean up the com­mu­nity. For curb­side pick up, call Lolita Takeda at 692-8200, ext. 2246; for free tow­ing of cars, call Rene Man­sho at 3061876. Par­tic­i­pants in­clude a part­ner­ship of 20 re­cy­clers and busi­nesses and area law­mak­ers as well as Kapolei High stu­dents.

Res­i­dents can bring all kinds of metal, paper, ap­pli­ances and old bulky things to the school park­ing lot, as well as canned items for Hawaii Food­bank. Also wel- come HI-5 con­tain­ers, cor­ru­gated card­board, egg car­tons, cell phones, printer car­tridges, cook­ing oil, phone books and mag­a­zines, bat­ter­ies and plas­tic bags.

Good­will will ac­cept us­able cloth­ing; Lions clubs will re­cy­cle eye glasses and hear­ing aids. Peo­ple also may ex­change two in­can­des­cent light bulbs for two CFLs.

No tires, TV sets, paint, green waste, mi­crowave ovens, mo­tor oil, haz­ardous flu­ids or gas tanks will be ac­cepted.

The drive is co­or­di­nated by Man­sho of Sch­nitzer Steel, a Camp­bell In­dus­trial Park metal re­cy­cler that, with oth­ers, will give its cash pro­ceeds from re­cy­cled waste to the school.
