Customers should locate the Solid Waste Facility Attendant (SWFA) on duty (they will have fluorescent safety vest on) and advise the SWFA that they have acceptable tires for recycling, the SWFA will instruct the customer where to properly place the tires. Tires dropped off before or after normal operating hours will be considered illegal dumping.
There is a 4 (acceptable) tire limit per day per vehicle so that we can fairly serve the public and ensure that one customer doesn't overload the site and unnecessarily prevent other customers from participating in the temporary collection. Please empty tires of any liquids, dirt or any other foreign material before bringing them in for disposal.
We are not accepting tires from businesses, commercial haulers, non-profits or farms. We are not accepting industrial tires (e.g. backhoe, tractor, forklift & etc. tires). Businesses, commercial haulers, non-profits or farms can contact Hawai‘i County Civil Defense for options to dispose of their tires.
This Fight the Bite Temporary Residential Tire Amnesty Collection Program may be extended if conditions warrant.
Mahalo for your kōkua.
