All areas of the island are
on a no-call, regular monthly collection schedule for bulky
Monthly pickup in your area is conducted over a 3-4 day period. All your
items must be placed at the curb by 6:00 am on the first day only. Bulky items must not be placed at the curb any earlier than the day before your collection day. If you have questions regarding acceptable items for pick-up or pick-up schedules, please call the collection yard servicing your area.
The benefits of regular bulky
item pickup are huge for our communities. Oahu's streets and
sidewalks can be clutter-free and safe, and we believe this will
significantly reduce illegal
dumping. But only if you do your part as well – everyone must
responsibly adhere to the schedule and place items at the curb
only on designated
There’s no excuse to dump on Hawaii.
Collection services are readily available. Our refuse and recyclables are collected
curbside weekly, bulky items monthly and
centers are available around the island. Please take the time to know the
schedules and dispose of items properly.
It is illegal to place items at the curb on any days other than the specified collection day. Property owners may be subject to fines up to $250 per offense. Your cooperation will avoid penalties and help keep the neighborhood safe and clean.
If you witness someone illegaly dumping items on your property, call 911 immediately and file a police report. This is our home, our island, our responsibility to care for its health and beauty.
The City provides for free collection of bulky items, such as
furniture, appliances, and mattresses. Most appliances are recycled.
If your items are still in good, useable condition, contact organizations
such as Goodwill and Salvation Army first.
|Your bulky items are collected in two different
types of trucks. Large metal appliances are collected separately
and taken to a metal recycling company. Those containing freon,
such as refrigerators, are first taken to Refrigerant Recycling
to remove and recycle the freon. Other items, such as televisions,
mattresses, and furniture, are collected in a rear loading packer
truck and taken to the landfill for disposal. So, if those are
still usable, don't put them out for bulky item pickup, call one
of the reuse
organizations listed here.
Rules for bulky item pickup
To help the City provide efficient service and to keep your neighborhood
safe and attractive, you must follow these rules:
Put items out for collection no earlier than the evening before
your scheduled pickup day or period. Bulky items sitting at the
curbside for long periods are unattractive in your neighborhood,
can be unsafe (especially for children) and can attract illegal
dumping at that site.
Remove or secure doors for refrigerators. Children have been
known to suffocate in refrigerators, unable to open the doors
from the inside. Remove the doors, tie it closed or place the
door against the ground or a wall to prevent it from opening.
- Do not block sidewalks, driveways or roadways.
