Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drives provide opportunities for schools, families and communities to drop off a variety of goods for reuse and recycling. Proceeds from HI-5 containers, scrap metal and used cooking oil go directly to the host school.

We will be collecting scrap metals* (bicycles, large and small appliances, etc.), electronics (computers, TVs, laptops, printer cartridges, cell phones, cameras, game systems, etc.), batteries, clothing/household items, used household cooking oil*, HI-5 beverage cans & bottles* and more. Confidential documents will be collected in locked bins by Goodwill Hawaiʻi and shredded securely at their headquarters.

*These recyclable items raise funds for the host school.

Aloha ʻĀina Recycling Drives are coordinated by Kōkua Hawaiʻi Foundation as part of the 3R’s School Recycling Program and are made possible through sponsorship from Schnitzer Steel and support from local recycling partners Pacific Biodiesel, Goodwill Hawaiʻi, T & N Computer Recycling, Interstate Batteries, RRR Recycling Services, Aloha Overstock, and Refrigerant Recycling.
