Maui needs your help to continue Third Saturday Recycling every month next year. Just a few minutes of your time can make a huge difference for Maui's ecological future.
Volunteers recycling appliances, TVS and scrap metal as part of West Maui's Third Saturday
The Mayor’s proposed budget for next year includes just half the funds needed for Third Saturday Recycling. Unless the County Council increases the funding, these monthly events will only be held every other month starting in July.
This is an incredible service to West Maui residents, run largely by volunteers and Malama Maui Nui. Since the Third Saturday Recycling program began in July 2015, Malama Nui has collected over 500 tons of electronic waste – that’s over 1 million pounds of refuse. Items collected include appliances (both Freon and non-freon), scrap metal, e-waste, tires, and lead-acid batteries.
Please let the County Council members know how important it is to continue Third Saturday Recycling every month.
