(PRWEB) June 11, 2012
Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling, Pacific Corporate Solutions, and the County of Kaua‘i are partnering to encourage the community to recycle their electronics. These events will be held during the month of June in ‘Ele‘ele, Kilauea and Lihue and will run from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
“People want to do the right thing with their old electronics, but there are three obstacles that often keep them from recycling those items: concerns about data security, concerns about environmental contamination and a lack of convenience,” stated Steve Skurnac, President, Sims Recycling Solutions, Americas. “This series of free, two-day events eliminates all those obstacles. Residents can drive up and drop off their old devices and leave knowing that all their data will be destroyed and no electronics will go to a landfill.”
The three events will be held on the dates listed below at the following locations:
June 18 and June 19, 2012
Anaina Hou Community Park in the Kaua‘i Mini Golf Lower Parking Lot
5-2723 Kuhio Highway, Kilauea, HI 96754
June 20 and June 21, 2012
In the parking lot at ‘Ele‘ele Shopping Center
4469 Waialo Road, ‘Ele‘ele, HI 96705
June 22 and June 23, 2012

These free, two-day e-waste collection events will be open to the public and businesses and set up as drive-through and drop-off events. Staff will be on hand to conveniently and quickly collect items from community members’ vehicles. For more information, please visit http://www.eWasteHawaii.com.
