49 locations will still offer ‘white bin’ recycling service

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Aug 10, 2012

~~<p><strong>Question:</strong> What will happen to those big recycling bins conveniently located at schools, where we recycle newspapers, paper and glass containers? I&rsquo;m sad and disappointed that a lot of schools are having them removed. Because I live in a small co-op, we don&rsquo;t have our own recycling setup. It would be nice if those bins could get reinstated.</p>
<p><strong>Answer: </strong>The city terminated its contract with Hono&shy;lulu Disposal Service for 100-plus community recycling bins in June and does not plan to renew it.</p>
