Aloha Aina Earth Day comes to Waialua Aug. 23, when residents can bring all their metal, paper, appliances and old bulky stuff to WCA Haleiwa Gym from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The recycling drive is spear-headed by local lawmakers and businesses and coordinated by Rene Mansho of Schnitzer Steel, a metal recycler that will give cash proceeds from the drive to Waialua Community Association.

Sought are scrap metal, auto parts, bicycles, metal appliances, car parts, air conditioners, newspaper, cardboard, HI-5 containers, passenger tires, cell phones, printer cartridges, phone books, green waste, cooking oil, computers (one per household) and car batteries. Clothing and household items will go to Goodwill.

“It’s a great way to clean out illegal dump sites as well as your own garages and back yards and to turn the trash into cash for the community,” said Mansho.

Mayor Mufi Hannemann, City Councilman Donovan Dela Cruz, state Sen. Robert Bunda and state Rep. Michael Magaoay are supporting the drive.

For details or to offer or ask for help with pick-ups, call Mansho at 306-1876 or Jon Marr at 285-3876.
