Kaimuki High Recycles Oct. 18

A Going Green recycling drive is planned for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Oct. 18 at Kaimuki High 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 Moiliili Community Center, Kapahulu Center and the high school. Coordinated by Rene Mansho, the community drive welcomes all kinds of metal, bicycles, appliances, HI-5 containers, cooking oil, cell phones, printer cartridges, corrugated cardboard, plastic bags and caps, batteries, fire extinguishers and propane tanks (maximum of three each), pet food and supplies, prom dresses and accessories, women’s business suits, and pairs of white socks (for Afghanistan).

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

Also helping out are U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, Gov. Neil Abercrombie, state Sen. Brian Taniguchi, Reps. Calvin Say, Scott Nishimoto, Isaac Choy, Scott Saiki, Mark Hashem, Bertrand Kobayashi and

City Councilmembers Ann Kobayashi and Stanley Chang.
