Want to get rid of fireworks?


The Hawaii Fire Department is conducting a collection of unwanted, illegal, and/or damaged fireworks from anyone wishing to turn them in for proper disposal.

Members of the public will be able to drop off their unwanted fireworks islandwide on Wednesday. Those wishing to participate can contact the HFD Fire Prevention Bureau at 932-2912 today between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for more information on drop-off locations and times.

You can also call that number for more information.

Acceptable items for drop-off include all types of fireworks, fountains, sparklers, firecrackers, cakes, rockets, etc.

In addition, you may also turn in any aerial luminary devices, which have been made illegal in Hawaii.

Please be advised that these fireworks are dangerous and utmost care must be taken to keep them away from any spark or open flame. Fireworks may be soaked in water overnight and dried prior to taking them to one of the drop-off locations.
