ISLAND LIFE SHORTS
Focus is on recycling, 'Opalavision'
Honolulu's curbside recycling program, alongside the city's interactive show "Opalavision," about recycling and waste management programs, is being showcased in a display touting public libraries.
Host libraries are offering a selection of recycling and garbage-related books for loan, as well as information about various green programs, ranging from do-it-yourself recycled crafts workshops to storytelling and "garbology" talks. This month, the display is at Kapolei Public Library, 1020 Manawai St. For library information, call 693-7050. By May, the city's curbside recycling program will be available to 160,000 homes across the island. For more details, call 768-3200 or visit www.opala.org.
