Free residential household hazardous waste collection (June 1 & 8)


Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events are 7:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., as follows:

* Saturday, June 1, 2013: at the Hilo Recycling and Transfer Stations

* Saturday, June 8, 2013: at the Kailua-Kona (Kealakehe) Recycling and Transfer Station

These events are for self-hauled household-generated waste only. No business or farm wastes and 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 acceptable HHW are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides.

The next scheduled HHW Collection Events are Dec. 7, 2013 in Hilo and Dec. 14, 2013 in Kailua-Kona (Kealakehe).

Direct comments or questions regarding these HHW Collection Events to Chris Chin-Chance, Recycling Specialist with the Department of Environmental Management at 961-8554 or email to
