Oahu recycling rates are above the national average and Honolulu ranks among the top cities in the country in landfill diversion. By employing both recycling and waste-to-energy, more than 70% of Oahu's municipal solid waste is being diverted from Waimanalo Gulch Landfill. Expansions to the H-POWER waste-to-energy plant and increases in recycling will further decrease what goes to landfill.
Please click through our website to learn more about all the stuff we throw away, and how you can help sort it out.


**For blue and green carts missed on Monday, 7/27/20, hold recyclables and greenwaste until the next SCHEDULED collection day.


In the case of any major disaster, the City will let residents know when to follow these FEMA guidelines
