Two Household Hazardous Waste collection events are on the schedule for early March in Waimea and Pahoa.

Household generated, self-hauled hazardous waste will be accepted on Saturday, March 5 at the Waimea Recycling and Transfer Station; and on Sunday, March 6 at the Pahoa Recycling and Transfer Station. Each collection will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Hosted by the County of Hawai’i Department of Environmental Management, the HHW collection events are held to provide an outlet for proper disposal of hazardous materials, including automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights, and pesticides.

Latex paint can be dropped off at the Waimea event only. Business and farm waste will not be accepted.

The next HHW events will be held during the month of June in Hilo and Kailua-Kona.
