Work Underway on Glenwood Transfer Station Damaged by Tree
Work has begun to demolish and remove structures that were damaged by a fallen tree at the Glenwood Recycling and Transfer Station in Puna, the Solid Waste Division reported on Tuesday, Aug. 9.
The facility has been closed since the tree fell on the roof covering the chutes on June 19, and users have been directed to the Volcano Transfer Station, which is now operating six days a week, and closed on Wednesdays. This schedule will remain in effect at least for the next two weeks.
Demolition and removal work is expected to take 14 days.
Glenwood is anticipated to reopen Tuesday, August 23, weather pending. The Glenwood and Volcano transfer stations will revert to their normal days of operations thereafter.
A temporary covering will be in place until a permanent replacement is installed.
