The County of Hawai‘i announces that the next Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection event will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at the Hilo Recycling and Transfer Station.

These events are for household-generated and self-hauled waste only. Business, government agency, non-profit agency or farm wastes are not allowed. NO electronic waste and no tires will be accepted.

The County of Hawai‘i Department of Environmental Management holds these regular collection events so that households can conveniently dispose of acceptable household hazardous waste in a manner that protects both public health and the environment.

Acceptable household hazardous waste includes automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides. Latex paint will be accepted at the Hilo event for reuse. For a more complete list of acceptable or unacceptable household hazardous waste, please visit the HHW website The website includes other useful information on solid waste diversion and recycling.

If you are unable to attend the events described above, the next scheduled household hazardous waste collection events will be on Dec. 1, 2018 in Hilo, and on December 8, 2018 in Kailua-Kona (Kealakehe).
