Keep it Clean and Green in Hana, May 24 – 29
East Maui residents will have an opportunity to drop off their recyclable items as part of a week-long “Keeping it Clean and Green in Hana” event sponsored by Community Work Day Program (CWD), County of Maui, Hotel Hana-Maui, Maui Tire Recycling, Maui Tow & Transport, and SOS Metals Island Recycling.
The collection dates are Monday, May 24th through Saturday, May 29th, 2010 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day. Residents are asked to bring their items to the staging area located in the parking lot across from the Old Hasegawa General Store on the makai side of Hana Highway towards Hamoa.
Items being accepted during the event will be appliances, scrap metal, vehicle parts, tires, batteries, TVs, computers and electronics. Hana residents are encouraged to take advantage of this week-long collection effort, as these items are not accepted at the Hana landfill.
In conjunction with the recycling event, the CWD Road Crew will also be doing a recon on the East side along the Hana Highway to bring metal and other solid waste items that have been dumped along the roadside back to the collection area for proper disposal.
Vehicles, furniture and green waste will not be accepted at this cleanup. Vehicle parts will be accepted. Following this week-long recycling event, a separate vehicle cleanup will be coordinated by SOS Metals.
Residents with a junk vehicle to recycle can call the SOS Metals Hotline at (808) 877-5834 for more information. Questions about the Hana Recycling event, can be directed to personnel at the Community Work Day Program at (808) 877-2524.
