to their facility. The successful remediation and recovery of this eyesore and environmental disaster gave residents a renewed vision of keeping Maui beautiful.

There was also an untapped amount of energy savings dividends in restoring the Hana Landfill. When this project was completed, SOS saved approximately 35 million pounds of green house gases and 2 million gallons of gasoline. All of these energy savings were accomplished through recycling.

SOS worked with Community Workday Program to receive all the scrap from their Hana Highway Clean-up Project as well as other clean-up projects. 

In 2010, SOS partnered with the County to implement a pilot scrap metal collection program at the Central Maui Landfill. Every month about 50 tons of metal are dropped off by the public, at the landfill, and is hauled off to SOS for processing. 

Recently, working along with Maui county, SOS implemented the "EARTH DAY EVERYDAY" program and offered free pick-up of derelict vehicles.  As of September, they picked-up over 1,600 vehicles.  Recycling one car saves 120 lbs. of limestone, 2,500 lbs. of iron ore, and 1400 lbs. of coal that would be used to make new steel. The recycling of one car saves 86% in air pollution (from the burning of coal), reduces 8,800 lbs. of green house gases and a saves 502 gallons of gasoline.

"We're pleased to have made a contribution to this community. With the help of our employees, we accomplished what we set out to do." The Shadrows want to express their appreciation to all SOS employees and everyone who works to keep Maui clean and free of junk and scrap metal. Since opening, SOS recycled close to 100 million pounds of metal.
