Recyclables, Canned Food Welcome At Honowai Elementary May 30

Going Green recycling drive is planned for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. May 30 at Honowai Elementary 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 Waipahu 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, and women’s business suits. Lions clubs and charities 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 cardboard, paper, plastics, tires, paint, microwave ovens, motor oil, hazardous fluids, wood or bulky items.

The school is located at 94-600 Honowai St., and area lawmakers are helping to support the drive.

For curbside pickups, towing of unwanted cars and other details, call Rene Mansho at 291-6151.
