5A Rent-A-Space to host ‘E-waste’ recycling event

By Staff | Jan 15, 2015

A truckload of “E-waste” was collected at last year’s event.

HONOKOWAI – 5A Rent-A-Space in Honokowai, assisted by Maui County Electronics Recycling and Habitat For Humanity, will hold an Electronic “E-Cycling” event on Saturday, Jan. 24, from 7 to 11 a.m. in 5A’s parking lot at 3600 Lower Honoapiilani Road.

5A Rent-A-Space, with the cooperation of the Maui County Electronics Recycling Program, will accept electronic waste equipment and deliver it to Habitat for Humanity’s Re-Store Warehouse in Wailuku for refurbishment or recycling.

5A invites the community to, “Join us as we work to keep our island home clean and green!”

The following items will be accepted: TVs, keyboards, laptops, computers and monitors, PDAs, MP3 players, CRT and LCD monitors, printers, scanners, DVD and VCR players, telephones, cell phones, fax machines, stereos, speakers, video and digital cameras, microwaves, and household and power tool batteries.

Recyclables include items with electronic circuit boards – computers and TVs – and everything that attaches to them, as well as audio, phone and most office equipment.

Useable equipment is donated to Habitat families, schools or non-profits. Items that are not useable or re-sellable will be shipped to the Mainland for recycling. The “e-cycling” program guarantees responsible recycling of electronics byproducts.

No appliances, auto or marine batteries, or hazardous waste will be accepted.

This event is one of the many community service activities and projects sponsored by 5A Rent-A-Space, Habitat for Humanity and the Maui County Recycling Program.

Items may be dropped off at 3600 Lower Honoapiilani Road between 7 and 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 24.
