Aloha Stadium to launch recycling program for non-profits

News

Starting this fall, Aloha Stadium will be launching a new recycling program that will give non-profit organizations the opportunity to raise funds.

The program is anticipated to begin the middle of August and run through December.

It’s designed to help non-profit organizations that have received tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code raise money through the collection of recyclables during all stadium events. Bottles, cans and plastics are collected throughout the interior and all parking lot locations.

“On average we collect anywhere from 35-55 large bags per weekend during the football season,” said deputy manager Ryan Andrews. “In the past, we have worked with the Hawaii Girls Scouts and they have raised hundreds of dollars. This a great way to give back but also make sure we play our role in the effort to minimize our ecological footprint.”

Groups will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis and are encouraged to contact the Marketing Department at (808) 483-7133 or email Samantha.L.Spain@hawaii.gov for more details and registration.

All groups will be required to submit a W9 tax form to Aloha Stadium in order to be considered for participation.

The stadium currently offers fundraising opportunities year round through their weekly car washes at the Swap Meet and Marketplace.

Groups interested in learning more about that can contact Centerplate at (808) 486-6704 Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, or email David.Sham@Centerplate.com.
