Pāhoa Redemption Center to Close Until Further Notice
The Pāhoa HI-5 Certified Redemption Center located at the Pāhoa Recycling & Transfer Station will close effective July 1, 2017, until further notice.
The close proximity of another certified redemption center about a half-mile away resulted in an unexpected increase in cost to continue services when the Pāhoa site’s operations contract was re-bid.
Due to this increase in cost and the close proximity of the alternate center, the site will be closed for the time being; the Hawai‘i County Department of Environmental Management plans to re-bid the site and possibly reopen it at a later date.

The Department of Environmental Management would like to thank the public for their cooperation and understanding as it works with its contractors to make the HI-5 program as convenient as possible.
The department apologizes for any inconvenience caused by the closure of the Pāhoa HI-5 Certified Redemption Center.
