The County of Hawai‘i Department of Environmental Management will begin charging a new tipping fee on July 1, 2015 to businesses that drop off greenwaste at recycling facilities in West Hawai‘i and East Hawai‘i. Revenue from the new fee will help to finance an expansion of greenwaste recycling services across the island.
