MEDIA RELEASE

 

Work continues on improvements to the Keaau Transfer Station.

Work continues on improvements to the Keaau Transfer Station mean the greenwaste and scrap metal bins are closed. Greenwaste and scrapmetal are being taken at the Pahoa and Hilo Transfer Stations.

Kea’au Recycle and Transfer Station is currently under reconstruction. The $578,311 reconstruction project is on schedule for completion by the end of October 2011.

“We apologize for any inconvenience to the Kea`au Community and ask for your patience and support while improvements are being made to the facility,” said Frank DeMarco, DEM Director.

Reconstruction of the facility will include improved vehicle access and circulation through the site, new road pavement, stormwater drainage improvements, recessed recycling bins, landscaping and an upgraded reuse facility.

The facility will remain open throughout reconstruction with only brief interruptions in service. Due to limited space during reconstruction, the site will be congested and not all services can be provided. So we ask that you use the Pāhoa or Hilo Recycle and Transfer Stations for your green waste and scrap metal collection services. All other services will continue at the Kea`au Recycle and Transfer Station.

For more information, contact Michael Friend, SWD Civil Engineer, at 961-8296 or go to the County Solid Waste Division’s website: www.hawaiizerowaste.org

The Keaau Recycle and Reuse Center has been moved near the entrance to the Transfer Station in Keaau.
