Upcountry Rotarians, with the cooperation of the Maui County Electronics Recycling Program, will pick up equipment on Saturday, Oct. 9, 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.
The club requests a donation of $5 each for small boxes of accessories and small items such as keyboards, speakers, laptops and small TVs up to 19 inches.
The club will accept $10 for medium-sized boxes of accessories and medium-sized items such as monitors, computers, and TVs up to 25 inches.
Larger equipment, such as TVs 26 inches or larger, will cost $15 to $20 per item for pickup.
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.
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 ecycling program guarantees responsible recycling of electronics byproducts.
This event will cover the Upcountry area only including Pā‘ia, Ha‘ikū, Makawao, Pukalani and Kula.
