Recycle Hawai`i is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization, helping our Hawaii Island communities REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE since 1992 and our grassroot efforts date back further, to 1987.
The mission of Recycle Hawaii is to educate the Hawaii Island communities on recycling and waste reduction activities for a more environmentally sustainable future. FEIN# 99-0293381
We currently offer free recycling educational services for all Hawai`i Island communities. This is made possible through proceeds from the five Recycling and Reuse Centers we manage under contract with the County of Hawai`i, at select transfer stations, our generous donors and dedicated volunteers.
Aloha from Recycle Hawai'i!
They will still accept E-waste for a fee of .55 cents per pound. Free E-waste disposal is still available at the county transfer stations on certain days.

Mulch supply at the East Hawai‘i Organics Facility in Hilo will be limited beginning February 15, 2017 through April 17, 2017. The limited supply is due to the County’s efforts to provide Enhanced Mulch. View the announcement here.
