The county is notifying the public that traffic will be redirected Friday, Aug. 5, at the Hilo Transfer Station.


The Department of Environmental Management reports that users of the transfer station will be directed to take an alternate route to dispose of their trash at the solid waste chutes because the Department of Public Works will be repaving the access route.

The repaving is necessary to improve the condition of the road and reduce wear on vehicles.

The transfer station will be open for normal operations, but delays are possible. Weather permitting, work will be completed in one day.

Traffic control personnel will be directing motorists at the transfer station.


The Department of Environmental Management thanks the public for its patience and understanding.
