Leilehua Hosting Recycling & Food Drive

A Going Green recycling drive is planned for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Nov. 1 at Leilehua 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 the high school, and none of the items will go to the landfill.

The community drive welcomes all kinds of metal, bicycles, appliances, HI-5 containers, cooking oil, cell phones, printer cartridges, 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. Tulsi Gabbard, Gov. Neil Abercrombie, state Sen. Donovan Dela Cruz, Rep. Marcus Oshiro and City Council Chairman Ernie Martin.

For curbside pickups and details, call Rene Mansho at 291-6151.
