School Recycling Drives Ahead

The Aloha Aina recycling program has scheduled two collection drives in the area in coming weeks: Kahuku High & Intermediate School will have one from 9 a.m. to noon this Saturday, and St. John Vianney Parish School will have one from 9 a.m. to noon May 9.

Both schools welcome all contributions from the public, in partnership with Schnitzer Steel and Kokua Hawaii Foundation’s 3Rs School Recycling Program. Acceptable items include scrap metal, bicycles, appliances, computers, game systems, laptops, printers, cartridges and other e-waste products.

Also needed are batteries, TV sets, used cooking oil, paper, corrugated cardboard, newspaper, reusable clothing and household items (for Goodwill), HI-5 containers and plastics (No. 1 and 2 containers).

A shredder also will be at each site for confidential document disposal.

Proceeds from recycling payments go to the schools. Email
