December 14, 2014 – February 28, 2015
The County of Hawai‘i is pleased to announce increased services for West Hawai‘i! Beginning Sunday, December 14, 2014, the Kealakehe Recycling & Transfer Station in Kailua-Kona will offer assisted mechanical loading of mulch every day. This is an increase from the prior service available only on Thursdays and Saturdays.
The service will be available daily from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The service is available for residential or commercial customers with any size vehicle ranging from small pickup trucks to large end-dump trailers. The loading service requires a small loading fee depending upon the size and type of vehicle. (For free mechanical loading of mulch go to the West Hawai‘i Organics Facility.)
More information is available online at https://www.hawaiizerowaste.org/recycle/greenwaste under Kealakehe Recycling & Transfer Station Customer Procedures. Please note that customers will be required to pay at the time of service and will be served on a first come basis while supplies of mulch are available. The only forms of acceptable payment are a debit or credit card. No cash will be accepted.
The Kealakehe Recycling & Transfer Station also has free mulch available for self or hand loading without any fees. Please make sure your vehicle has a tarp or other method for covering your mulch load to avoid spillage on roadways.
Mulch has many benefits including improving the quality of your soil, providing an insulating layer on topsoil, keeping weeds down and minimizing water needs.
Mulch is also available without any loading fees at the County’s West Hawai‘i Organics Facility (WHOF) located adjacent to the West Hawai‘i Sanitary Landfill in Pu‘uanahulu.
