HONOLULU — The city’s Department of Environmental Services (ENV) is currently accepting appointments for household hazardous waste drop-offs.

The next two drop-off dates are Jan. 25 and March 8, by appointment only.

ENV conducts bimonthly collection drop-offs, but residents must call the ENV Household Hazardous Waste Line at (808) 768-3201, and be prepared to provide a list of items and estimated quantities.

Only small quantities are accepted from each household. Larger quantities may be rejected or incur a fee.

The deadlines to call and make an appointment are today (Jan. 17) and Feb. 28, respectively. Businesses must contract privately for proper disposal of hazardous waste materials.

Honolulu does not have a hazardous waste landfill. ENV has procured a vendor that collects the hazardous wastes and ships them off island for proper disposal.
