Where does the recycling go?
As I put my recycleables into the large dumpster bins behind the Lawa‘i post office, I wondered exactly where do these plastics end up?
I know we don’t have a sorting facility anymore. I know many foreign countries have stopped accepting recycled materials. Anyone know where this stuff actually goes? Does it get shipped to the mainland? Does it actually get recycled? I hope it doesn’t just end up in the landfill and this is just a big façade.

Governor, lift virus restrictions
We the people are waking up and are standing against this COVID restrictions!
There are nearly 700 people wanting a town-hall meeting with the governor, who keeps saying he’s “too busy!”
Hundreds of Hawai‘i citizens are contacting the governor DAILY, asking him to withdraw his vaccine-passport program because it is against the Constitution and is not legal to coerce people into taking an experimental vaccine!
Hundreds of Hawai‘i citizens are asking the governor why Hawai‘i isn’t among the 21 states who have lifted their COVID restrictions when the regular flu has killed more people in the state of Hawai‘i each year for the past six years than COVID (source: tinyurl.com/hawaiifludeaths).
There is no emergency. We need to go back to real life without fear-mongering propaganda!
