HI-5 Redemption Center at Volcano Transfer Station to Close
It looks like residents of the Volcano area will need to find a new place to take their recyclables.
The county Department of Environmental Management announced that after Sept. 29, the Volcano HI-5 certified redemption center will cease operations at the Volcano Recycling and Transfer Station.
A 90-day extension of the contract was negotiated with a change of day of operations to address a staff shortage for the current contract holder and to put the contract out to bid again. Unfortunately, no bidders expressed interest, again.
The county will continue efforts to solicit bids from recyclers to serve the Volcano area community.
Here are nearby alternate recycling services:
- Atlas Recycling Center, Kea‘au Recycling and Transfer Station: Hours are 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
- Business Services Hawai‘i, W.H. Shipman Business Park: Located at 16-630 Kipimana St. in Kea‘au. Hours are 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
