Recycling, Food Drive At Leilehua

A Going Green recycling drive is planned for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday 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, 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 tires, paint, microwave ovens, motor oil, hazardous fluids, cardboard, paper, plastics, wood and bulky items.
