CONVENIENCE CENTERS RESUME ACCEPTANCE OF

NON-COMBUSTIBLE WASTE ON MARCH 1

 

(Thur., Feb. 24, 2011) The City's Department of Environmental Services (ENV) will resume acceptance of non-combustible waste at all refuse convenience centers on a limited basis beginning Tuesday, March 1, 2011.  Householders will be allowed one (1) load of non-combustible waste per week during the month of March, until further notice. 

         Previously, the City restricted householders from disposing of non-combustible waste at its six convenience centers Ewa, Laie, Wahiawa, Waianae, Waimanalo and Waipahu while Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill (WGSL) was undergoing repairs to address the effects of  the unusual storm event on January 12, 2011.

         Residents are requested to logon to www.opala.org for addresses and phone numbers for Convenience Centers.
