Recycling programs boosted by $15K
Recycling resource management programs have received a boost from a $15,000 grant from the Grousbeck Family Foundation.
Since 2008, the foundation has provided support for various Recycle Hawaii educational programs and has also helped support past efforts in the collection and recycling of electronic waste, aka e-waste, and home-composting workshops islandwide to help reduce electronics and organic waste going to island landfills.
“This year’s grant will be used to support efforts to capture and recycle used motor oil via our Do-It-Yourself, Used Motor Oil collection program and to divert usable construction, demolition and remodeling (C&D) materials from landfills,” said Paul J. Buklarewicz, executive director for Recycle Hawaii. The nonprofit group is celebrating 20 years as a 501(c)3 community membership organization.
Incorporated in 1992 and active as a grassroots effort since 1989, the mission of Recycle Hawaii is to promote resource management and recycling in Hawaii. This comes in the form of educating and informing the people of Hawaii about environmentally sound resource management and recycling opportunities for a sustainable future, said Buklarewicz.
