Reynolds Recycling has opened a full-service HI-5 Redemption Center at Leeward. The redemption center is located on the Diamond Head side of campus in the gravel lot.

The partnership was developed by the college’s Sustainability Committee in its continuing effort toward employing more earth-friendly practices and “greening” the campus.

The hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturday (closed 12-1:30 p.m. for lunch). Acceptable materials include all HI-5 deposit beverage containers (cans and bottles), non-deposit glass bottles and jars and scrap metals (aluminum, copper, brass, stainless).

The HI-5 Redemption Center is open to the campus community and the general public.
