RECYCLING SHOWS TOUR CITY SUMMER FUN PROGRAM

 

           

Starting next week, and running through June to July 11, recycling shows will be touring 48 of the City’s summer fun sites. “Our kids get it,” says Mayor Mufi Hannemann.  “There’s too much trash.  It shouldn’t go to the landfill.  We all need to work together to recycle more and seek alternative technology.  It makes sense.” 

 

The City has procured the services of three local performing groups to create recycling education shows for our kids.  The musical, fanciful, storytelling, rapping, interactive performances should have them dancing and singing the message of the 3R’s all the way home to their families.

 

The performers draw on recycling songs by the Lava Jam Band and Jack Johnson, and wrote some original pieces (soon to be the new favorites) to drive the message home – “Put Opala in its Place,” “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” “It’s Piling Up,” “Start with a Can,” “Litter Bug,” “Jump Up Think About It,” “Good Garbage,” “(Mother Earth has got the) Indigestion Blues,” “Movin’ Plastic.”

 

“Your kids may come home from summer fun singing and dancing to a new beat. . .the reduce, reuse, recycling beat,” says City Recycling Coordinator Suzanne Jones.

 

 

Mayor Hannemann hopes parents will be attentive when their kids come home excited and singing with a flyer that outlines all of the City’s recycling services and programs – curbside greencycling collection, islandwide community recycling bins, HI5 redemption centers, islandwide monthly pickup of bulky items, and more.

 

The recycling show schedule is below.  These are not open to the public -- just for the summer fun programs.  The public can catch these shows at the City’s second annual Discover Recycling Fair, September 21, 22 and 23 at the Blaisdell Arena.  FREE.  And the recycling shows will be made available to Oahu schools during the upcoming school year.
