The solid waste service at Hilo Transfer Station is closed due to the facility reaching maximum capacity allowed by the State Department of Health.

Excess materials from Hilo White Goods and Scrap Metal Services are being removed today so normal operations can resume. The closure only affected the white goods area.

Officials say the area will be back running Friday. Refuse disposal, recycling and greenwaste are all open during the normal time schedules.

For today, residents are asked to hold on to their material until the site resumes accepting these commodities. The County is actively continuing its efforts to remove the materials on hand to allow for future acceptance.

Department of Environmental Management, Solid Waste Division Office, at 808-961-8270 for further questions.
