Well I went to the Pahoa Transfer Station today and I was stunned to see all the garbage that was tossed along the road on the way there.
There was literally a two piece couch set that looked like it belonged to each other at one time.
Anyone recognize these couches (Click on the small pictures to enlarge)
Notice the tire behind the couch in that bottom picture? I must have came across at least a dozen tires!
Recently the group Keep Hawaii Beautiful received a mini grant of $1,700 to help dispose of these tires properly but that will run out quickly… just look at all these tires?
I even found a mattress along the side of the road.
I couldn’t figure out what this was…
So I flipped it over and it turned out to be a dish washing machine.
All of this “opala” (garbage) was found within a mile of the transfer station and most of this stuff except for the tires could have been taken there.
