Oahu, Hawaii – Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, will host three free electronics collection events to encourage Honolulu and Kapolei residents to recycle their electronics. All items collected for recycling will be safely and responsibly recycled by Sims Recycling Solutions.
These three events will be held at various locations throughout the island of Oahu on April 20, 2013. The two events in Honolulu, Hawaii, will be held at Kahala Mall in the Macy’s parking lot located at 4211 Waialae Ave., Honolulu, HI 96816; and DOE – Auxiliary Service Branch located at 1037 S Beretania St., Honolulu, HI 95814. The event in Kapolei will be held at the Kapolei Shopping Center in the Safeway parking lot located at 590 Farrington Highway, Kapolei, HI 96707. All Oahu events will run from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Material collected at the Kahala Mall event will count toward an attempt to break an official Guinness World Record for the most consumer electronics collected within 24 hours at multiple locations.
“The celebration of Earth Day is the perfect time to reflect on the actions each of us can take to safeguard the planet. These community electronics collection events make it easy for people to be good environmental stewards by simply dropping off broken or old devices. They can also be a part of an exciting attempt to break a Guinness World Record,” stated Steve Skurnac, President, Sims Recycling Solutions, Americas. “While the goal of these one-day events is to collect a record-breaking number of electronic devices, the broader objective of this campaign is to raise awareness about the ongoing importance of properly recycling e-waste. By recycling end-of-life electronics, we all have the ability to contribute to a sustainable future and create a healthier world.”
These e-waste collection events will be set up as drive-through and drop-off events. Staff will be on hand to conveniently and quickly collect items from community members’ vehicles. Please visit us atus.simsrecycling.com/Earth-Day-2013 for more information.
