The next Household Hazardous Waste collection events will be held on two dates in June in both Hilo and Kailua-Kona.

Household generated and self-hauled automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights, and pesticides will be accepted, along with latex paint for reuse.

The Hilo event will take place at the Hilo Recycling and Transfer Station on Saturday, June 4, and the Kona event will take place on Saturday, June 11 at the Kailua-Kona Recycling and Transfer Station. Both events will run from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Business, government agency, non-profit agency, or farm waste will not be allowed. Electronic waste and tires will also not be allowed.

The County of Hawai‘i Department of Environmental Management holds these regular collection events so households can conveniently dispose of acceptable HHW in a manner that protects public health, the environment, and the drinking water supply
