Fire Closes West Hawai‘i Organics Facility, Greenwaste Sites

The West Hawaiʻi Organics Facility, along with the greenwaste sites at the Kealakehe, Waimea, and Keʻei Transfer Stations, are closed on Tuesday.

County of Hawai`i officials say the closures are due to a fire at the West Hawai‘i Organics Facility, which is where all the greenwaste materials are processed.

“We hope to reopen these greenwaste sites tomorrow, Wednesday, July 10, 2010, with the exception of Keʻei, which will reopen on Friday, July 12, 2019,” the county said in a release.

Residents and commercial greenwaste customers are asked to hold on to their greenwaste, or they may take their greenwaste to the East Hawaiʻi Organics Facility in Hilo.
