Household hazardous waste collection (April 16-17)


The county is planning Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events Saturday, April 16, at the Waimea Solid Waste Transfer Station, and Sunday, April 17 at the Pahoa Solid Waste Transfer Station.

Collections will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The HI-5 Certified Redemption Center will remain open during the Pahoa event.

These events are for household generated waste only. No business, farm wastes or electronic waste will be accepted.

The county Department of Environmental Management holds these collection events to help residents conveniently dispose of acceptable household hazardous wastes in a manner that protects public health and the environment.

Some acceptable household hazardous wastes are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides.
