Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events Scheduled in Waimea, Pāhoa
Household Hazardous Waste collection events are scheduled in Waimea and Pāhoa for next weekend.
The first collection event will take place on Saturday, March 5, at the Waimea District Park, and the second on Sunday, March 6, at the Pāhoa Recycling and Transfer Station. Collections will take place between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on both days.
The County of Hawai‘i’s Department of Environmental Management holds these regular collection events, at no charge to the public, so households can 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 bulbs and pesticides. For a more complete list of acceptable or unacceptable household hazardous waste, click here.
These events are for household-generated and self-hauled waste only. Business, government agency, nonprofit agency, or farm wastes are prohibited by law. No latex paint, no electronic waste, and no tires will be accepted.
Officials ask those coming to either event to remain in their vehicles keep household waste items in trunk or truck bed.
