Hui o Ko‘olaupoko (HOK) and O‘ahu Resource Conservation & Development Council (ORC&D) have partnered with Schnitzer Steel Hawai‘i, the City and County of Honolulu and the Hawai‘i Department of Health to create a community-based recycling day for Waimānalo residents on January 9, 2010 at Waimanalo Beach Park from 8-2.
At this event, Waimānalo community members will have the opportunity to recycle cell phones, computers, batteries, tires, scrap metal, printer cartridges, newspaper, telephone books, beverage containers and many other items. We will also offer curbside pick-up of bulky items and free towing of unwanted vehicles.
An event of this size could not be accomplished without support from individuals and businesses in the community. We are recruiting nearly 100 volunteers to help unload and sort the recyclables for community members, drive trucks for curbside pick up, and direct the flow of vehicles in and out of Waimānalo Beach Park.
Volunteers can sign up for one of 2 shifts: 7:30am-11am or 11am -2:30pm.
Volunteers are also needed in groups of 3 to drive trucks for curbside pickup of bulky items.
Donation to the event are also being accepted.
We will need:
Large bags of ice
150 clear trash bags
3 boxes of rubber gloves
Volunteers will be recognized for their efforts by providing them with lunch, drinks, snacks and a t-shirt.
If you you would like to volunteer or have any questions, please call Kristen Nalani Mailheau at 381-7202 or Jean Brokish at 483-8600 ext 123 for more information.
Thank you for supporting the Waimānalo community.
