The Dept. of Environmental Services reminds residents that refuse collection workers will not be collecting trash, recyclables and green waste on Christmas Day, Thursday, Dec. 25, and New Year’s Day, Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015.
Oahu residents are reminded that:
- 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.
- 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 holidays. 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.
City Convenience Centers, Transfer Stations, H-POWER and Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill will also be closed Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, but will re-open on December 26 and January 2.
Kauai, Maui and Hawaii Island will all have regular trash pickup schedules through the holidays.
