December 28, 2022 – January 15, 2023
To help make the holidays greener, the Solid Waste Division of the Department of Environmental Management will again offer tree-cycling.
Residential customers are encouraged to tree-cycle their holiday trees and kadomatsu decorations at the following Recycling & Transfer Stations: Kealakehe (Kailua-Kona), Ke‘ei, Kea‘au, Pāhoa, Volcano, and Waimea from 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on regular greenwaste collection days, at the East Hawai‘i Organics Facility (EHOF) in Hilo from 7:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. (closed from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily), and at the West Hawai‘i Organics Facility (WHOF) in Pu‘uanahulu Mondays through Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. (closed from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m.).
Residential customers with only holiday trees for tree-cycling may proceed directly to the East Hawai‘i Organics Facility (EHOF) and tree-cycling area—there is no need to go to the County scalehouse, as normally required. Residential loads with both greenwaste and holiday trees must go to the County scalehouse to be weighed. All commercial haulers or commercial holiday tree collectors must proceed to the County scalehouse prior to recycling.
This service will be available to the public from December 28, 2022 through January 15, 2023. For more information please visit: Hawaiizerowaste.org or call the Solid Waste Division at 808-961-8270
