Residents Discover Creative Side of Recycling

HONOLULU HARBOR (KHNL) - People got a chance to check out the creative side of recycling Thursday at a special fair on Oahu.

From recycled art, to turning old tennis shoes into a brand new basketball court, there were all kinds of examples of how people can reduce and re-use their trash at the third annual "Discover Recycling Fair".

The fair also provided tips to people on how to set up their very own recycling collection system.

"I think Hawaii people have been so used to not recycling, they want to recycle," said Community Relations Director Rene Mansho.

"They want to have the convenience, they want to know where to go, what to do, and so when the city brings us all together, this is a chance for the young children to say 'wow, I didn't know you could do that.'

The fair continues Friday from noon to 3:30 pm and on Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm.
