The County of Hawai`i has announced that effective July 1, the Pahoa HI-5 Certified Redemption Center located at the Pāhoa Recycling & Transfer Station will be closed until further notice.
The close proximity of another certified redemption center, about a half-mile away, resulted in an unexpected increase in cost to continue services when the Pāhoa site’s operations contract was re-bid.
County officials say, due to this increase in cost and the close proximity of the alternate center, the site will be closed for the time being; the department plans to re-bid the site, and possibly reopen it at a later date.
Please see the schedule below for the alternate sites and operating hours:
|Kea‘au, Atlas Recycling
Kea`au Recycling & Transfer Station
16-921 Kea‘au-Pahoa Road
|Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday||8:00am – 3:30pm|
