A “Nourishing Your Neighborhood” recycling drive is planned for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Kapolei High School, adding a canned food drive for Hawaii Foodbank to the community recycling effort, as well as welcoming “an unlimited number” of residential and commercial computers.

Washington Middle School initiated a no-cost e-waste and food drive last month and collected 21,000 pounds of computers and 1,000 pounds of canned goods. The food is welcome in exchange for the free recycling service.


Kapolei residents also can bring all kinds of metal, appliances, HI-5 containers, cooking oil, cell phones, printer cartridges, phone books, magazines and batteries to the school parking lot, 91-5007 Kapolei Parkway. Goodwill and Lions Clubs will make use of any donated clothing, household items, hearing aids and eyeglasses.

For details, call Rene Mansho at 306-1876.

The mini drive is coordinated by Mansho of Schnitzer Steel, a Campbell Industrial Park metal recycler that, with other sponsors, will give cash proceeds from the drive to the high school. Also involved are state Sen. Mike Gabbard, City Councilman Todd Apo, state Rep. Sharon Har and gubernatorial candidate Neil Abercrombie.

Donors also may exchange old light bulbs for two CFLs per person.
