Bulky Collection Enforcement
What types of items are collected?
if I canít wait for my scheduled collection?
All areas outside of metro Honolulu are
on a no-call, regular monthly collection schedule for bulky
Monthly pickup in these areas is conducted over a 3-4 day period.
All 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 Ė everyone must responsibly adhere to the schedule
and place items at the curb only on designated days.
Thereís 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 or in area(s) other than that fronting your property. Property owners are subject to fines up to $250 per offense, individuals are subject to fines up to $2,500 per offense. Your cooperation will avoid penalties and help keep the neighborhood safe and clean.
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 H-POWER 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 or place the
doors against the ground or a wall to prevent them from opening.
- Do not block sidewalks, driveways or roadways.
