Upcountry Rotarians, with the cooperation of the Maui County Electronics Recycling Program, will pick up equipment on Saturday, June 19, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and deliver it to Habitat for Humanity’s Re-Store Warehouse in Wailuku for refurbishment or recycling.
This pickup and delivery is free; however, your donation will help the Rotary club support other community service projects throughout the year.
Recyclables include items with electronic circuit boards—computers and TV’s—and everything that attaches to them, as well audio, phone and most office equipment. No appliances will be accepted.
“If it goes whir, ping, zip or ‘kablooey,’ chances are we’ll take it!” said Upcountry Rotary Community Service Director Melanie Stephens. “And you don’t even have to be at home. Just mark your e-cycling for pickup with the word ‘Rotary’ written on your donation envelope and tape it to your unwanted equipment. We’ll do the rest.”
Useable equipment is donated to Habitat families, schools or nonprofits. Items that are not useable or sellable will be shipped to the Mainland for recycling. The e-cycling program guarantees responsible recycling of electronics byproducts.
This event will cover the Upcountry area including Pā‘ia, Ha‘ikū, Makawao, Pukalani and Kula.
Proceeds from the e-cycling event will help fund scholarships for Maui students, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp and other community projects.
