Hui o Ko‘olaupoko (HOK) is partnering with O‘ahu Resource Conservation and Development Council and the Waimanalo community, along with various recycling companies, to host the fifth annual community-based recycling day for Waimanalo residents onJanuary 11, 2014 From 09:00 AM to 01:00 PM .
At this event, community members have the opportunity to recycle cell phones, computers, batteries, tires, scrap metal and many other items. We also offer curbside pick-up of bulky items within Waimanalo and free towing of unwanted vehicles. Recycling these items reduces the amount of trash going to landfills and helps to protect local streams and Waimanalo Bay from harmful pollutants.
An event of this size could not be accomplished without support from individuals and businesses in the community. We are recruiting more than 50 community volunteers to help unload and sort the recyclables, drive trucks for curbside pickup, direct the flow of vehicles in and out of Waimanalo Beach Park and organize street & stream clean-up teams. These volunteers will dedicate more than 150 volunteer hours to keep Waimanalo clean and green. Volunteers can sign up for one of 2 shifts 8am-11am or 11am-2 pm. All volunteers will be rewarded with a hearty local lunch provided by Sweet Home Waimanalo.
Please contact Kristen Nalani Mailheau at firstname.lastname@example.org or 381-7202 for more details or to RSVP.
