Aiea Goes Green July 28 With Recycling

A recycling drive for the Aiea Community Association is on for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 28 at Alvah Scott Elementary School, adding a canned food drive for Hawaii Foodbank, as well as accepting “an unlimited number” of residential and commercial computers and e-waste, and one TV set per car.

The drive, co-sponsored by state Rep. Heather Giugni, aims to clean up the community while benefiting it with proceeds from the sale of recyclable items.

The Going Green Day welcomes all kinds of metal, appliances, HI-5 containers, cooking oil, cell phones, printer cartridges, newspapers, cardboard egg cartons and drink trays, phone books, corrugated cardboard, magazines, plastic bags and caps, batteries, propane tanks, fire extinguishers, propane tanks (call first), air conditioners, green waste, white socks, pet food and supplies, prom dresses, business suits and more.

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

For curbside pick-up, call Reena at 554-6296; for free towing of unwanted cars, call Rene Mansho at 291-6151. The school is located at 98-1230 Moanalua Road.
