Thanks to the many good samaritans who responded to coverage by the Honolulu Advertiser (Will Hoover) and KITV (Dick Allgire/Keoki Kerr) about leftover trash at Kea`au. During the last week of February, these volunteers, along with many of the houseless, hauled away all of the remaining trash from the 2/13/10 clean up.
Businesses, non-profits, and individuals who helped included Henkels & McCoy Inc. (Mike Alvarez & his team, who brought 3 dump trucks and heavy equipment), Todd Liddy (who hauled away an 18' boat and a broken trailer, click on image above), Foster Realty (Sylvia "Elsie" Foster & staff, who hauled away highway trash on 2/25/10), Partners in Development (Kia`i Lee, Danny Goya & staff), Mililani Middle School, Wai`anae Community Outreach (Tulutulu Toa & her team), & Nani `O Wai`anae (Mark Suiso, Lucy Gay, Alice Greenwood, & others). The City and State also hauled trash and bulky items, and several individuals asked to be notified of future clean-ups. You are true heroes!
