Upcountry Rotary Offers E-Cycling & Battery Pickup

March 6, 2012
The Maui Weekly

The Rotary Club of Upcountry Maui is holding another television and computer e-cycling event on Saturday, March 10, from 8 a.m. to noon.

The Rotary club will pick up unwanted electronic equipment for a small donation, while giving Upcountry residents the opportunity to support the organization's scholarships and leadership training for Maui students, and other community projects.

Upcountry Rotarians, with the cooperation of the Maui County Electronics Recycling Program, will pick up 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 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, including microwaves, will be accepted.

In addition, the club will pick up batteries for an additional $5 ($10 for car batteries) for recycling at CWD for those already arranging for pickup of electronic equipment.

"If it has a cord and a circuit board, we'll take it," said Upcountry Rotary Community Service Director Melanie Stephens. "What an easy way of dealing responsibly with your electronics. Thanks to the e-cycle crew for making this possible!"

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 only including Pa'ia, Ha'iku, Makawao, Pukalani and Kula.

Call Melanie at 573-9260 or Claire at 298-2393 to arrange for pickup.
