FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 7, 2014
NO CITY TRASH PICK UP FRIDAY
HONOLULU – The city’s Department of Environmental Services will NOT be collecting trash Friday, August 8, due to the Tropical Storm Warning for Iselle. Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill, convenience centers, transfer stations, and H-POWER will be CLOSED to all public and private vehicles.
Residents on the 3-cart system (gray, green, blue) and all manual collection routes to be serviced Friday are asked to hold their trash and recyclables until the next scheduled collection date.
If homeowners are unable to wait until their next scheduled collection date, they may drop off their waste at one of the city’s six convenience centers (Ewa, Laie, Wahiawa, Waianae, Waimanalo and Waipahu) when they reopen.
Please do not leave refuse, bulky items, or carts at the curb. Please keep all containers and refuse on your property, secured as well as possible. If you have bulky items fronting your property, please secure those items onto your property as these may become projectiles in the storm.
