The County of Maui reminds residents that a variety of programs are available for recycling Christmas trees and unwanted electronics during this holiday season.


County parks, community centers or other county facilities may not be used for tree-cycling or dumping of unwanted items.

Trees being recycled must have all decorations removed, including tinsel, to allow them to be safely composted.

Tree recycling is available at the following locations:

  • EKO Compost, Central Maui Landfill: (808) 572-8844
  • Olowalu Convenience Center: (808) 893-0932
  • Hāna Landfill: (808) 264-6313,
  • Kihei Compost (call for fees): (808) 874-0899
  • Pawn’s Tree & Trimming, Molokai Landfill: (808) 553-8073

The Rotary Club of Upcountry Maui Curbside Christmas tree pickup service will also be available for Pā‘ia, Ha‘ikū, Makawao, Pukalani and Kula residents on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2018, from 8 a.m. to noon.


A $10 donation is requested for small and medium trees, and a minimum donation of $20 per large tree is requested to help support the club’s community service projects.

Trees should be set out on the curb before 8 a.m. on the day of pickup. Pickup can be scheduled by contacting Zak Pacholl at (503) 550-6666 by Friday, Jan. 4, by 4 p.m.



E-cycling will be closed Dec. 22 through Jan. 4 due to the holidays and will open on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019.

A special one-time holiday clean-up day is scheduled for electronics recycling on Monday, Jan. 7, 2019 from 9 a.m. to noon at the county-funded E-Cycling program at 901 Lower Main Street in Wailuku.

The cleanup day is in addition to E-Cycling’s regular hours, which are Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Tuesdays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Four types of electronics are accepted at the E-Cycling program: televisions, computers, monitors and printers. E-cycling cannot accept microwaves, cell phones, stereos, copiers, fax machines, computer games or any other electronic devices.

The service is provided free of charge; the public is asked to refrain from leaving any items at the gate after hours.
