UPDATED NEW YEAR’S DAY TRASH COLLECTION SCHEDULE
HONOLULU – The City’s Department of Environmental Services reminds residents that refuse collection workers will not be collecting trash, recyclables and green waste Jan. 1, 2014 – New Year’s Day. Refuse workers observe only Christmas and New Year’s days as holidays.
- Communities using the 3-cart collection system, with once-a-week refuse and once-a-week recycling pickup, are asked to leave their gray carts curbside until serviced, usually within two business days.
- Recycling days that fall on these holidays will NOT be made up. Please hold mixed recyclables (blue cart) and green waste (green cart) until the next scheduled pickup date in two weeks.
- Residents on twice-a-week manual refuse collection, please hold items for the next scheduled pickup date.
- Bulky collection will continue on the days following the holiday. Since bulky pickup is conducted over a 3-4 day period in each sector, the collection crews will make up the holiday on the other days.
Furthermore, all City Convenience Centers, Transfer Stations, H-POWER and Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill are closed New Year’s Day. However, all of these facilities re-open January 2.
