Upcoming Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events

Free Residential Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events

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

  • Saturday, December 2, 2017 at the Hilo Recycling and Transfer Station.
  • Saturday, December 9, 2017 at the Kailua-Kona (Kealakehe) Recycling and Transfer Station.

These events are for household-generated and self-hauled waste only. Business, government agency, non-profit agency or farm wastes are not allowed. 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 hazardous waste in a manner that protects both public health and the environment. Acceptable household hazardous waste includes automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides. Latex paint will be accepted at the Hilo and Kona events for reuse. For a more complete list of acceptable or unacceptable household hazardous waste, please visit our website http://www.hawaiizerowaste.org/recycle/household-hazardous-waste/. The website includes other useful information on solid waste diversion and recycling.

If you are unable to attend the events described above, the next scheduled household hazardous waste collection events will be on March 3, 2018 in Waimea, and on March 4, 2018 in Pāhoa.Please direct your comments or questions regarding these Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events to Chris Chin-Chance, Recycling Specialist with the Department of Environmental Management at 961-8554 or email to recycle3@co.hawaii.hi.us.
