May 2, 2020 – June 1, 2020
Beginning on Saturday, May 2, 2020, the Kalapana Transfer Station will be open one day per week, on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This site will accept ONLY residential (household) solid waste.
The maximum is one load per day, with a maximum load size of 3 cubic yards. (Three cubic yards will fit in a full-size pickup truck loaded up to the side rails)
Currently greenwaste can be taken to the East Hawai‘i Organics Facility in Hilo which is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. (closed 12:00 – 12:30 p.m. daily). Recyclable materials can be taken to another Recycling & Transfer Station, including the Pāhoa Transfer Station which is open 7 days a week, from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
This change is based on the amount of public use and tonnage collected at this site.
Thank you for doing your part in keeping our island a clean and safe paradise.
