Event Description

I have a bunch of old CRT monitors that I picked up eight years ago that I never used taking up space in my parent's house. After searching for a place to get rid of them in an environmentally safe way, I've found it! Coming up on October 17th you can dump your old computers equipment and prevent landfills from being contaminated by toxic acid and other toxic chemicals.

Checkout the informational flyer.

"Aloha `Aina Earth Days" started in April 2004, to address illegal dumping issues. The first event was held at Waianae Boat Harbor collecting only scrap metal, and has progressed to include almost 20 items that are being re-used, and/or recycled. Apparently it happens every month in a different neighborhood around Oahu.
