Bulky-item pickup by appointment only debuts from Hawaii Kai to Foster Village

  • STAR-ADVERTISER/2012

    Bulky items waiting pickup on Keeaumoku Street. Starting next month, bulky-item pickup will be by appointment only in several city districts.

Starting May 15 residents from Foster Village to Hawaii Kai — including busy Waikiki — will have to go online to schedule appointments for bulky-item pickup service.

The city today announced the debut of its curbside bulky-item collection pilot program.

To schedule appointments, single- and multi-family households within the Department of Environmental Services’ zones 1-8 may log on toopala.org. Pickup service begins June 3. Those unable to schedule online should call the department at 768-3200 between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Single-family homes may schedule up to five bulky items per appointment, while multi-unit residential buildings may schedule up to 20 bulky items per appointment, according to the city.

Associations of apartment owners, property managers or residential managers are required to consolidate bulky-item collection appointments for tenants and store items in onsite holding areas between appointments, according to the city.

Those unable to wait between appointments may drop off items at convenience centers listed at opala.org. A map illustrating the various pickup zones is also available on the website.
