Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drives

March 03, 2020
We are more than halfway through our Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drive schedule for the year! So far our host schools have collected over 80,000 lbs of materials for recycling and reuse!
Waialua High & Intermediate, Keoneʻula and Kamiloʻiki Elementary all hosted Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drives in February. Over 23,000 pounds of materials including scrap metal, electronics, furniture, batteries, cooking oil, and household items were collected and rescued from disposal for reuse and recycling. Mahalo to B.E.A.C.H., as well, for completing their bottle cap collection project, collecting many thousands of caps that will be processed back into fuel. Mahalo B.E.A.C.H. for supporting recovery of more hard-to-recycle materials, preventing further plastic pollution! 
Please join us at our next two Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drives in Kapahulu and Hawaiʻi Kai. A friendly reminder that these Recycling Drives are intended to benefit the host school, and community residents limited to one truckload. For businesses and surrounding schools looking to recycle electronics broken and still working, please contact our partners T&N Computer Recycling and Hawaiian Hope to schedule a separate pickup.
