The Metals Recycling Facility at the Molokai Landfill will close this Friday, December 11, 2009 after reaching its permitted storage capacity.  County officials say no materials will be accepted during the temporary closure in accordance with permitting requirements from the State Department of Health.

According to county officials, the site was designed to be an interim facility.  A permanent site is being built and is expected to open in the late Spring of 2010.

In the interim, no materials are being accepted at the Molokai Metals Recycling Facility.  The site has been the drop off point for vehicles, appliances, scrap metal, tires, propane tanks and car batteries.

Questions can be directed to the Solid Waste Division by calling (808) 270-7875. Callers on Molokai should dial 1-800-272-0117 and request extension 7875.
