Volcano Recycling & Transfer Station reopened on Tuesday following over seven months and $1.15 million in renovations and improvements as the newest of the county’s 22 recycling and transfer stations on the Big Island.

The facility is now equipped with the proper facilities to accept trash, green waste, scrap metal, white goods, such as appliances, and mixed recyclables.

Beginning in August, HI-5 beverage container redemption will also be available at the site.

Traffic flow at the center has been redesigned and members of the public dumping their household waste should find a route that encourages and makes recycling easier.

Future plans for the Volcano transfer station include a reuse center where unwanted items will be accepted.


The facility is open on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
