The existing East Hawaiʻi Regional Sort Station restrictions on businesses hauling commercially generated wastes larger than five cubic yards will be extended for one year, through June 30, 2022.

Should circumstances change, this restriction may end earlier. A five-cubic-yard load will fit in a standard size pickup truck with an 8-foot-long bed filled to the top of the cab.

The Sort Station, located adjacent to the closed South Hilo Sanitary Landfill, will continue to accept businesses hauling residentially generated waste without charge during regular business hours from 7:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. daily.
