Tour de Trash – Tour 4: Reuse Tour (Brand new tour added in 2019!) @ Kapolei Hale
Jul 23 @ 8:30 am – 12:45 pm

This new tour will feature organizations that are doing their part to reduce our waste at the source. Part of their work includes salvaging or accepting donations of construction material, tools, appliances, furniture and other home goods to be refurbished, resold and reused. Re-Use Hawaii is a nonprofit organization established in 2006 whose mission is to reduce waste through alternatives to demolition from public donations of building materials. They redistribute these materials to the community as an affordable resource. They also work to deconstruct instead of demolish buildings in order to salvage the reusable material. The Salvation Army is an international organization that came to Hawaii in the 1890s. Their mission is to aid in providing for the material, emotional and spiritual needs for those requiring assistance. At their headquarters, we will see how they provide housing and work for those in need, receive truck loads of donations from around the island, sort, refurbish, distribute to their other thrift stores and resell the items to help support their cause. Honolulu Habitat for Humanity is part of a global, nonprofit organization that seeks to eliminate substandard housing through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes. Their ReStore section is a home improvement store and donation center that sells new and gently used furniture, appliances, building materials and home accessories to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Proceeds raised at ReStore go towards supporting their mission of providing housing for those in need.

Tour de Trash – Tour 5: Construction & Demolition Recycling @ Kapolei Hale
Aug 22 @ 8:30 am – 12:30 pm

On the Construction and Demolition (C&D) Recycling tour, see how companies give C&D material a second life by transforming it into new usable forms. Learn how Island Demo deconstructs buildings, recycles the metals, and cleans and grinds concrete to be used as aggregate. West Oahu Aggregate recycles concrete, rock, and asphalt for resale and screens and converts dirt into topsoil. At PVT Landfill, the majority of the incoming C&D waste is separated, processed for reuse or recycling. Much of the waste at PVT Landfill is planned to be used as feedstock for a gasification process that will produce electricity.
