The County of Hawai‘i Department of Environmental Management holds these regular collection events so households can conveniently dispose of acceptable HHW in a manner that protects both public health and the environment.  Some acceptable HHW are automotive fluids, used batteries, fluorescent lights and pesticides.  For a more complete list of acceptable or unacceptable HHW, please visit our website The website includes other useful information on solid waste diversion and recycling.
