Kauai puts curbside recycling to the test
LIHUE – Kauai officials are beginning a pilot curbside recycling program in parts of the island.
Workers will pick up recycling at homes in Puhi and parts of Lihue starting next Thursday.
Kauai County has already delivered specialized recycling carts with blue lids to 1,300 homes in the area.
Kauai has contracted Garden Isle Disposal, Inc. to sort and track the recyclables.
The program will accept cardboard, newspaper, mixed paper, aluminum and plastics marked with the numerals 1 or 2 in a recycling logo.
It will also accept glass food and beverage containers. We are so behind in the curbside program, I hope this goes well because we need to be apart of the “green movement”
