Comment:

On Wednesday,  22 November 2017, I received a nice e-mail from Leigh Critchlow, Editor of the BIARC Newsletter, reminding me about the upcoming Big Island Amateur Radio Club Christmas meeting and potluck dinner on Saturday, 01 December 2017, at the Keaau Community Center.  Leigh has also added the Hawaii County Hazardous Household Waste collection dates.

Here is the full text of Leigh’s message:

I’ve been asked to remind everyone about the annual BIARC Christmas meeting and potluck party at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 9, at the Keaau Community Center. If you are going to attend, please respond to this email by December 1 and let the planning committee know:  1) number in your party; 2) what you plan to bring for the dinner. Coordinators would like to get an approximate head count and idea of what the menu will be.

Thus far, members have signed up to bring ham, turkey, pupus, deviled eggs, green bean casserole, green peas…

Anything you want to bring to augment this list is very welcome.

Also: To give everyone a heads-up, Bob Schneider passes on the following info about upcoming opportunity to legally, ethically and ecologically unload batteries and other toxic stuffs.

County of Hawaii Hazardous waste collection December schedule

An article in the Sunday November 19 Hawaii Tribune-Herald announced the upcoming Household Hazardous Waste Collection schedule.

Hilo Transfer station Saturday December 2 from 7:30 am to 2:30 pm.

Kealakehe (Kona) Saturday December 9 from7:30 am to 2:30 pm.

Here is a chance to get rid of hazardous stuff from the hamshack such as batteries and fluorescent bulbs.  There is also medications and other things listed on page A5 of the newspaper.

Unfortunately one of the items not accepted is electronics.  For more information see the article in the newspaper, call 961-8554 or visit the website at www.hawaiizerowaste.org.

I found the best source was the newspaper article.
