Post Date:06/30/2020 2:39 PM
East Hawaiʻi Regional Sort Station services are closed to businesses hauling commercially-generated waste larger than five (5) cubic yards through September 30, 2020.  This restriction may end earlier if circumstances change.  A five cubic-yard load will fit in a standard size pickup truck with an 8-foot long bed filled to the top of the cab.
The Sort Station, located at the South Hilo Sanitary Landfill (aka Hilo Dump), will continue to accept businesses hauling residentially-generated waste during regular business hours from 7:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. daily.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.
