When it comes to recycling…Hawaii has struggled with a lack of resources and funding. But a new hands-on project in Oahu is taking a do-it-yourself approach. HPR’s Molly Solomon reports.  

For more information on the DIY Hi-5 Public Recycling Project, call 768-3200 or email tfarnsworth@honolulu.gov. More information is available online.

Beach Environmental Awareness Campaign Hawaii, or B.E.A.C.H., will continue to make and distribute HI-5 wire bins along beach parks on Oahu's south shore. Follow the link above to help them with their efforts.

You can also learn more about how the project started at Eating in Public
