July 8, 2019 –
The Kealakehe and Waimea greenwaste collection sites, at their respective Recycling & Transfer Stations, are closing until further notice. The reason is because the greenwaste at these sites is taken to the West Hawai‘i Organics Facility in Waikoloa, which is closed due to heavy smoke caused by a fire.
When the West Hawai‘i Organics Facility is safe to reopen, the Kealakehe and Waimea greenwaste collection sites will reopen.
Residents and commercial greenwaste customers are asked to hold on to their greenwaste if they can, or they may take their greenwaste to the East Hawai‘i Organics Facility in Hilo.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding. Please visit our www.hawaiizerowaste.org website for future closure information and locations, or call the Department of Environmental Management, Solid Waste Division Office, at 961-8270.
