Household Hazardous Waste collection events are scheduled for two Big Island locations in June.
On Saturday, June 3 at Hilo Recycling and Transfer Station and on Saturday, June 10 at the Kailua-Kona (Kealakehe Recycling and Transfer Station. Each collection event will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
These events are for household generated and self-hauled waste only. Business, government agency, non-profit agency or farm waste are not allowed. In addition, no electronic waste and no tires will be accepted.
The County of Hawai‘i Department of Environmental Management holds these regular collection events so that households can conveniently dispose of acceptable household waste in a way that protects both public health and the environment.
Some types of acceptable household waste are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides. Latex paint will be accepted at the Hilo & Kona events for reuse.
The next collection events will be hosted in December.
