Large applicance recycling closed temporarily at Pahoa


The County of Hawai‘i Department of Environmental Management is temporarily closing the White Goods Recycling Area at the Pāhoa Transfer Station due to ongoing construction at the site.

It is not known exactly when white goods (large appliances) recycling may resume at the site. It is anticipated that the closure will last a few months. The closure will allow construction to improve the facility to proceed as quickly as possible and shorten the temporary inconvenience to the residents. These site improvements will greatly enhance the recycling opportunities at the Pāhoa Transfer Station and complete necessary repairs to the facility.

Residents may take their white goods/appliances to the Hilo Scrap Metal Facility adjacent to the Hilo Transfer Station on Leilani Street. Residents may also take non-automotive and non-appliance scrap metal to the Kea‘au Transfer Station scrap metal bin. All businesses and other non-residential entities are prohibited from using the Transfer Stations and should take their scrap metal and appliances to the Hilo Scrap Metal Facility.
