Free Hazardous Household Waste Collection Scheduled for Wai‘ōhinu

The County of Hawai‘i has scheduled a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection event from 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 3, 2011 at the Wai‘ōhinu Solid Waste Transfer Station.

The County of Hawai‘i Department of Environmental Management holds these free collection events to help residents conveniently dispose of acceptable HHW in a manner that protects both public health and the environment.

This event is for household generated and self-hauled waste only.  No business or farm wastes allowed, and no electronic waste will be accepted.

Some acceptable HHW are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides.  There will also be a concurrent latex paint reuse collection/exchange during this event.

For a more complete list of acceptable or unacceptable HHW, please visit our website www.hawaiizerowaste.org. The website includes other useful information on solid waste diversion and recycling.

The next HHW Collection Events will be on December 3, 2011in Hilo and December 10, 2011 in Kailua-Kona.
