Free Residential Household Hazardous Waste Collection for June
The Hawai‘i County Department of Environmental Management announced Household Hazardous Waste collection events will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., at the following locations:
- Saturday, June 3, 2017, at the Hilo Recycling and Transfer Station.
- Saturday, June 10, 2017, at the Kailua-Kona (Kealakehe) Recycling and Transfer Station.
The DEM would like to remind individuals that these events are for household generated and self-hauled waste only. Business, government agency, non-profit agency or farm waste are not allowed. No electronic waste and no tires will be accepted.
The County of Hawai‘i Department of Environmental Management holds regular collection events so that households can conveniently dispose of acceptable household waste in a way that protects both public health and the environment.
A few types of acceptable household waste are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides. Latex paint will be accepted at the Hilo & Kona events for reuse.
For a complete list of acceptable or unacceptable household waste, visit the website.
The website also includes other useful information on solid waste diversion and recycling.
If you are unable to attend the events described above, the next scheduled Household Waste Collection Events will be on December 2, 2017, in Hilo and Dec. 9, 2017, in Kailua-Kona (Kealakehe).
