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.
For more information, view the webpage here.
The County of Hawai‘i is pleased to announce increased services for West Hawai‘i! Beginning Sunday, December 14, 2014, the Kealakehe Recycling & Transfer Station in Kailua-Kona will offer assisted mechanical loading of mulch every day (with loading fee). This is an increase from the prior service available only on Thursdays and Saturdays.
The service will be available daily from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
