County officials announced that refuse collection services for residents affected by the April flood in the Wainiha and Haena area will continue.
The Solid Waste division will continue to provide the following services:
• A solid waste staging area at Kepuhi Point will be open to residents and businesses for drop-off of source-separated waste, including bulky items, green waste, tires, metals, white goods, and propane tanks. This service will continue until Kuhio Highway between Waikoko and Wainiha is open to the public.
• Refuse collectors will accept bagged trash as well as trash in carts set at the county right of way in front of all households through August 31.
The Solid Waste Division encourages residents to utilize the Hanalei transfer station if possible, including the residential recycling bins.
Please note that only bagged trash is accepted at the Hanalei transfer station due to equipment repairs.
All other recycling services will not be affected including green waste, scrap metals, appliances, propane tanks, used tires, residential recycling drop bins, and residential used motor oil and motor oil filters.
