Reduce and Reuse


Reducing what you consume is a simple concept. Buy less and use less so there is less waste. Click: waste prevention. Cutting down on waste that affects our island home is also as easy as reusing what you have.


Consider reuse options before disposal. There are numerous nonprofit organizations around Oahu involved in reuse operations. A donation of goods to a qualified nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status may provide a tax deduction for the donor. Check the listings below for an organization that suits your needs. Be sure to check with the organizations for details and procedures.

Organizations That Take Household Items

These organizations accept used items such as: clothing, small appliances, bedding, small furnishings (end tables, chairs, lamps), toys, kitchen and household goods --except where noted differently. Contact the organization prior to dropping off your reusable items.
