Residential household hazardous waste collection (June 4, 11)


Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection events will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., as follows:

* Saturday, June 4, 2016 at the Hilo Recycling and Transfer Station.

* Saturday, June 11, 2016 at the Kailua-­Kona (Kealakehe) Recycling and Transfer Station.

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

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

Some types of acceptable HHW are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides. Latex paint will be accepted at the Hilo & Kona events for reuse.
