Kapolei Calls For Recyclables

A recycling drive for Kapolei High School is planned for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dec. 1 at the school to benefit campus programs and help the community clean itself up. A canned food drive for Hawaii Foodbank also is planned, and volunteers will accept “an unlimited number” of residential and commercial computers and e-waste, plus one TV set per car.

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, fire extinguishers, propane tanks, pet food and supplies, prom dresses, business suits and more.

Goodwill and Lions clubs will make use of donated clothing, household items, hearing aids and eyeglasses. Participants also can swap incandescent light bulbs for CFLs. Also welcome are white socks (for Afghanistan), plastic bags and bottle caps, and plastic playground equipment and helmets.
