The City Department of Environmental Services (ENV) has placed ads in both the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and MidWeek to educate Honolulu residents about the bulky item rules, routes, schedules and enforcement action that will begin May 1. “We now have the fines and appeals processes in place and are educating residents before implementing the whole system,” Lori Kahikina, director of ENV, said. “Many residents are aware of their setout schedules for bulky items, but this is a little reminder educating that fines will be levied to those who don’t follow the rules.” Further, the ads discuss property owner responsibility and penalties for violators of the City Ordinance. The City also sent out in mass mail letters to all Association of Apartment Owners (AOAO) who oversee multi-unit dwellings on Oahu informing them when enforcement action will begin.
