Vehicle Disposal Assistance Program
The County of Hawaiʻi Department of Environmental Management Derelict/Abandoned Vehicle Section is initiating a year-round program in November 2019 that is designed to assist County residents with the disposal of unwanted vehicles. This Vehicle Disposal Assistance Program is to help registered vehicle owners dispose of unwanted vehicles legally and properly, to reduce the number of derelict and abandoned vehicles left on public roadways.
A maximum of two junk vehicles per registered owner, per calendar year, may be disposed of at no charge. The County will pay the disposal fee directly to the County’s vehicle disposal contractor. However, the registered owner is responsible for having their vehicle transported from its current location to the County’s contracted vehicle disposal facility. The registered owner is also responsible for all costs associated in getting their vehicle transported from its current location to the County’s contracted vehicle disposal facility.
Applications for this program will be accepted starting November 1, 2019. Registered vehicle owners are encouraged to submit their applications early as there are limited disposal appointments available each day.
