The Rotary Club of Kihei Sunrise will hold an electronic e-cycling event on Saturday, Jan. 21, from 8 a.m. until noon.
The Rotary club will pick up unwanted electronic equipment for a small donation while giving Kihei area residents the opportunity to support the organization's scholarship and leadership training for Maui students, and other community projects.
Kihei Sunrise Rotarians, with the cooperation of the Maui County Electronics Recycling Program, will pick up the equipment 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 the following items: small boxes of accessories, TVs up to 19 inches, keyboards, speakers and laptops. The club will accept $10 for a medium-sized box of accessories, TVs up to 25 inches, desktop computers and computer monitors. Larger equipment, such as TVs bigger than 25 inches and large boxes of accessories, will cost $15 for pickup.
Recyclables include items with electronic circuit boards--computers and TV's--and everything that attaches to them, as well as audio, phone and most office equipment. No appliances will be accepted.
"If it goes whir, ping, zip, or 'kablooey,' chances are we will take it" said Kihei Sunrise Community Service Chair John Musser.
Useable equipment will be 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 Kihei, Wailea and the Ma'alaea areas only.
Call Christine at 292-2242 or Margie at 633-4563 to arrange for pickup.
