June 4, 2022
On Saturday, June 4, the IRONMAN World Championship will be conducting a half-distance
qualifying race for athletes vying to compete in the 2022 Ironman World Championship triathlon in West Hawai‘i in October. The bicycle course uses Akoni Pule Highway and the section of Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway north of Mauna Lani Drive.
Recycling centers and solid waste transfer stations in North Hawai‘i and Hāmākua will be
affected by this race and residents in Hāwī, Honoka‘a, Waimea, and Pa‘auilo should expect
delays in service as Solid Waste Operations will need to take alternative routes to the West
Hawai‘i Sanitary Landfill.
Please adjust your schedules as appropriate for your needs.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding. Please visit our www.hawaiizerowaste.org and register for Solid Waste Notifications (via email or text).
