Kauai County says colorful aluminum cans are needed to decorate a tree for the Festival of Lights starting Dec. 7 at the Historic County Building.
The cans would be used to create ornaments for a 9-foot-tall tree called the “If Can, Can” tree, the county said in a news release. About 200 colorful cans are needed and should be empty and not crushed.
“We’re looking for all the different colors of the Hawaiian Sun and Aloha Maid juice cans, bright red Coke cans, energy drink cans, green ginger ale cans, as well as Arizona Green Tea cans,” Elizabeth Freeman, festival organizer, said in the release. “If an aluminum can is bright and colorful, we want it.”
Freeman hopes to collect the aluminum cans by Nov. 7.
Drop-offs can be made at the County Recycling Office at the Lihue Civic Center, Moikeha Building, Suite 295.
