CITY EDUCATING RESIDENTS ABOUT FINES FOR ILLEGAL BULKY ITEMS

 

(Fri., March 8, 2013) The City Department of Environmental Services (ENV) is placing ads in both the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and MidWeek during the week of March 11 to educate Honolulu residents about the bulky item rules, routes, schedules and enforcement action that will begin May 1.

 

         "We now have the fines and appeals processes in place and are educating residents before implementing the whole system," Lori Kahikina, director of ENV, said. "Many residents are aware of their setout schedules for bulky items, but this is a little reminder educating that fines will be levied to those who don't follow the rules."

 

         Both ads will provide sector breakdowns with respective schedules, highlight the appropriate schedule/time to place bulky items curbside and discuss what types of materials are collected as bulky items.

 

         Further, the ads will discuss property owner responsibility and penalties for violators of the City Ordinance.

 

         The City also sent out in mass mail letters to all Association of Apartment Owners (AOAO) who oversee multi-unit dwellings on Oahu informing them when enforcement action will begin.
