Green waste service to resume at Kealakehe Transfer Station

Green waste service for residential users will be available three days per week starting Saturday at the Kealakehe Transfer Station.

Residential users may drop loads between 8 a.m. to and 4 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays, according to a media release from the Hawaii County Department of Environmental Management.

A maximum of one residential load per day, with a maximum of 5 cubic yards per load will be accepted. Five cubic yards is the equivalent of a full-sized pickup truck with an 8-foot bed filled up to the cab.

Users must keep a 6-foot or greater social distance from each other and facility employees. If the social distance cannot be maintained, all users must wear a face covering.
