Treecycling Dec 26 – Jan 20

RECYCLE your Holiday Tree and Greenery

Dec 26, 2017 to Jan 20, 2018 

Recycle your tree at any of the County of Hawaii Solid Waste Division Facilities during normal business hours (excluding for the Miloli‘i and Ocean View Transfer Stations). Trees should be free from all decorations, stands, lights, tinsel and ornaments. Please do not drop off artificial or flocked trees in the designated areas. Any flocked trees, artificial trees or trees with tinsel are not recyclable and may be disposed of in the regular trash chutes.

Residential Customers

Please leave trees in designated areas (not in rubbish chutes). County Facility Attendants will direct the public to the proper drop-off point.
Hilo Recycling and Transfer Station
Residential customers with ONLY holiday trees may proceed directly to the East Hawai‘i Organics Facility. Look for the designated area to drop off trees. There is no need to go to the County scale as is normally required.
West Hawai‘i Organic Facility in Pu‘uanahulu
Follow the same year-round procedures for Greenwaste recycling. Customers must immediately proceed to the scale upon entering the facility.
Kadomatsu decorations
Kadomatsu decorations are normally a combination of bamboo, pine and flowers. Please recycle them with your other green waste. 


Commercial Customers

Please recycle trees at either the East Hawai`i Organics Facility in Hilo or the West Hawai‘i Organics Facility in Waikoloa.
