The Navy Region Hawaii Recycling Program plans to reopen its HI-5 Redemption Center, building 1715, near Kuntz Gate at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on May 6.

“The center had to be closed in October 2013 due to financial adjustments of the program, requiring moving redemption from Morale, Welfare and Recreation to the Navy Exchange,” said Fran Pena, recycling program manager for Navy Region Hawaii.

“We are very pleased to reopen and provide easy drop off HI-5 cans and bottles to all military, family members and Department of Defense civilians who wish to use our facility.”

Vouchers will be issued at building 1715 that can be redeemed for cash at the Pearl Harbor Navy Exchange customer service desk in the main atrium.

For those who wish to recycle more than cans and bottles, personnel at the other end of the building will accept cardboard and paper items such as newspaper, soft cover books, catalogs and magazines.

The redemption center is open from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Please remember that all bottles or cans turned in for redemption should be free of liquids and debris.

For commands and activities who are interested in establishing regular pickup service for recyclables, or who need assistance in transporting large quantities of goods, call Richard Vila at the Navy Region Hawaii recycling program coordinator at 474-9207.
