Recycling Drive Will Benefit Campbell High

A Going Green recycling drive is planned for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Nov. 8 at Campbell High School, where canned food also will be accepted for Hawaii Foodbank.

Also being collected are an unlimited number of residential and commercial computers and e-waste — and one TV set per car.

Proceeds from redemption fees will benefit the school, and none of the items will go to the landfill.

Coordinated by Rene Mansho, the community 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.

Participants also can swap incandescent light bulbs for CFLs.

However, do note that the drive cannot accept tires, paint, microwave ovens, motor oil, hazardous fluids, cardboard, paper, plastics, wood or other types of bulky items.

Lending support are U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Gov. Neil Abercrombie, state Sen. Will Espero, state Rep. Dob McDermott and City Councilwoman Kymberly Pine.

An additional community recycling drive is planned for Dec. 6 at Kapolei High School.

Campbell High School is located at 91-980 North Road.
