Rotary Club to Pick Up Electronics

April 19, 2012
The Maui Weekly

The Rotary Club of Kihei Sunrise will hold an electronic e-cycling event on Saturday, April 21, from 8 a.m. until noon at the St. Theresa Church Parking lot, on the corner of S. Kihei Road and Lipoa Street. This is the club's second E-Cycle event this year.

The Rotary club will pick up or accept unwanted electronic equipment in the parking lot for a small donation, while giving Kihei area residents the opportunity to support the organization's scholarship and health activities 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 of recycling.

This event will cover Kihei, Wailea, Maui Meadows and the Ma'alaea areas only.

The club requests a donation of $5 each for 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 larger than 25 inches and big boxes of accessories will cost $25 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.

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.

Call Christine at 292-2242 or Margie at 633-4563 to arrange for pick up or you can drop off items at the St. Theresa's Church Parking lot between 8:00 and 12:00 noon on Saturday, April 21.

This e-cycling event is one of the many community service activities and projects sponsored by the Rotary Club of Kihei Sunrise.
