Free residential household hazardous waste collection



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

* Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, at the Hilo Recycling and Transfer Station.

* Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013, at the Kailua-Kona (Kealakehe) Recycling and Transfer Station.

These events are for household-generated and self-hauled waste only. No business or farm wastes and no electronic waste will be accepted.

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

Some acceptable HHW are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides.

The next scheduled HHW Collection Events are Saturday, March 1 in Waimea and Sunday, March 2 in Pāhoa.
