Household hazardous waste to be collected
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events will occur between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., on Saturday, March 2,at the Waimea Recycling and Transfer Station, and on Sunday, March 3 at the Pāhoa Recycling and Transfer Station.
These events are for household generated and self-hauled waste only. Business, government agency or farm wastes are not allowed, and no electronic waste will be accepted.
The County of Hawaii Department of Environmental Management holds these regular collection events so households can conveniently dispose of acceptable hazardous wastes in a manner that protects both public health and the environment. Some types of acceptable hazardous wastes are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides.
For a more complete list of acceptable or unacceptable HHW, please visit our website at www.hawaiizerowaste.org. The website includes other useful information on solid waste diversion and recycling.
The next scheduled household hazardous waste collection events will be on June 1, in Hilo, and June 8 in Kailua-Kona (Kealakehe).
