February was another great month for Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drives. Kainalu and Keoneʻula Elementary schools hosted with 35 student, teacher, and parent volunteers. The highest volumes of recyclables for both came from HI-5 cans and bottles that the schools collected themselves and from community members. The counts are still coming, but each school likely made over $100 from cans and bottles in addition to money for used cooking oil, laptops, and scrap metal.
The schools also collected batteries, old electronics, gently used clothing and household items, and more from the community. For the full schedule of upcoming recycling drives, click here. All Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drives are held on Saturdays from 9:00am - 12:00pm. Upcoming recycling drives in 2017 are:
