Pahoa Trash Dump Road TRASHED! Opala in Paradise

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.

The look on this dolls face says it all!

There was literally a two piece couch set that looked like it belonged to each other at one time.

Two couches less then 50 yards away from eachother

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!

What do we do with 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.

Serta?

I couldn’t figure out what this was…

What the ???

So I flipped it over and it turned out to be a dish washing machine.

Ah poor ting... someone is going to have hand wash dishes now.

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.

Geez! Tossing away garbage cans and all!
