County E-Waste Collection Program Suspended

April 4, 2022, 12:53 PM HST

The county has suspended its E-Waste Collection Program, effective immediately, due to a lack of funding.

State funding for the e-waste collection has been exhausted for the fiscal year 2021-22. County officials are advising residents and businesses should make alternate plans for disposal or consider holding on to their e-Waste until the program restarts.

Residents and businesses may still elect to utilize services provided by Mr. K’s Recycle & Redemption, located in Hilo; however, they will be required to pay for recycling services. Additionally, Mr. K’s offers pick-up services for customers with larger quantities of electronics.

The County’s e-waste collection program will be restructured, and a redesigned program will be available to the public again sometime after July 1, 2022.

For more information on currently available electronics recycling, call Mr. K’s Recycle & Redemption at 808-969-1222. Visit www.hawaiizerowaste.org and register for Solid Waste Notifications
(via email or text) for future information, or call the Solid Waste Division Office at 808-961-8270.
