Aloha Stadium offers more than just football and ceremonies this fall when a new recycling fundraising program begins.

AIEA — Starting this fall, Aloha Stadium will be launching a new recycling program that will give nonprofit organizations the opportunity to raise funds.

The stadium currently offers fundraising opportunities year-round through its weekly car washes at the Swap Meet & Marketplace.
The new recycling program is designed to help nonprofit organizations that have received tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service to raise money through the collection of recyclables collected 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 Ryan Andrews, deputy manager at Aloha Stadium. “In the past we have worked with the Hawaii Girl 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-served-basis and are encouraged to contact the Marketing Department at 483-7133.
All groups will be required to submit a W9 Tax Form to Aloha Stadium in order to be considered for participation. The program is anticipated to begin the middle of August and run through December.
