Recyclers Ready For Your Stuff

A Going Green community recycling drive is planned for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday in Castle High’s auditorium parking lot, where canned food also will be accepted for Hawaii Foodbank.

The drive will take an unlimited number of 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.

Coordinated by Rene Mansho, the drive welcomes all kinds of metal, bicycles, appliances, HI-5 containers, cooking oil, cell phones, printer cartridges and batteries.

Also on the list are fire extinguishers and propane tanks (maximum 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 good use of any donated clothing, household items, hearing aids and eyeglasses.

The drive cannot accept tires, paint, microwave ovens, motor oil, hazardous fluids, cardboard, paper, plastics, wood or other types of bulky items.

To tow cars or for more details, call Mansho at 291-6151 or email Area lawmakers also are supporting the drive.

Coming up Jan. 31 are two more: a Going Green drive at 9 a.m. at Waimanalo Beach Park (381-7002) and an Aloha Aina recycling drive at 9 a.m. at Lanikai Elementary School (
