Free residential household hazardous waste collection (March 2-3)


Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events will occur between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., as follows:

* Saturday, March 2 at the Waimea Recycling and Transfer Station

* Sunday, March 3 at the Pahoa Recycling and Transfer Station

These events are for household generated and self-hauled waste only. Business, government agency or farm wastes are not allowed. No electronic waste will be accepted.

The county Department of Environmental Management holds these regular collection events so households can conveniently dispose of acceptable HHW in a manner that protects both public health and the environment.

Some types of acceptable HHW are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides. For a more complete list of acceptable or unacceptable HHW, visit:

The next scheduled HHW Collection Events are June 1 in Hilo and June 8 in Kealakehe.
