July 31, 2018 – September 30, 2018
Vehicle Disposal Assistance Program
The County of Hawaiʻi Department of Environmental Management Derelict and
Abandoned Vehicle Section is initiating a short‐term program in August 2018 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
vehicles legally and properly, in an effort to reduce the number of derelict and
abandoned vehicles on public roadways.
A maximum of one vehicle per registered owner may be disposed of during this
program’s time period of August 1 to October 31, 2018, at no charge. Each owner is
responsible for the towing and removal costs from the vehicle’s location to the
designated scrap metal recycler. The County will pay only the disposal costs
directly to the County’s existing scrap metal contractors.
This program may be extended if allocated funds are available.
Applications for this program will be accepted from August 1 – September 30, 2018. Registered
vehicle owners are encouraged to submit their applications early, before the limited
disposal appointments are filled.
