The County of Maui, Department of Environmental Management, has completed a non-exclusive license agreement and concession to allow RRR Recycling Services to operate at the Lanai Recycling Center.

According to Maui County Recycling Coordinator Hana Steel, this agreement will enable Lanai residents to have the same quality of services currently being delivered by RRR at the 20 other redemption centers it manages on Oahu. On Oahu, RRR reportedly manages the processing of over 20,000 tons of recyclables each year.

“We are looking forward to working with the State’s new HI 5 contractor, RRR,” Steel said, in a written statement. “I’m sure they will do the same fantastic job for Lanai that Tri-Isle Recycling did before them. The people of Lanai take recycling very seriously. Although they have the smallest population they turn in a huge amount of recyclables.”

“RRR Recycling Services Hawaii is excited to have been awarded the contract to provide the Island of Lanai HI-5 redemption services. RRR Recycling is owned by the Henriques’ Family who has lived in the islands for generations. Conserving Hawaii’s natural resources is important to us. We look forward to increasing recycling on Lanai.  We will provide residents with the same courteous and efficient customer service we provide on the island of Oahu,” said spokeswoman Linda Henriques, Vice President of RRR Recycling Services.


The Lanai redemption center will be staffed and managed by Brian and David Hubin of Lanai and Maui County. Hubin Family has lived on Lanai for three generations. Brian Hubin, operations manager, who currently resides in Maui County, was born and raised on Lanai. The David Hubin, site manager, was born and raised on Lanai and is a retired Lanai federal postal worker. 


Lanai Recycling Center hours are Monday through Wednesday, from 1 to 4:30 p.m.; Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Saturday, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The center is closed on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
