The Hāna metals and electronics recycling event continues today (Friday) and Saturday, despite closing early on opening day yesterday.

The popularity of the Hāna metals and electronics recycling event led to closing it a couple of hours early on Thursday after available space in containers reached full capacity.

The County of Maui Department of Environmental Management apologized for the early closure. There’s limited space for collection containers at the Hāna Landfill, and the event needed to shut down when they were full.

The event will continue as scheduled from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Friday, March 6, and Saturday, March 7, at the Hāna Landfill. If full capacity is reached again, the landfill’s solid waste management permit requires that no additional material be accepted.

Metal items accepted include large appliances, up to 15 auto tires per household, auto batteries, propane tanks and scrap metals. Appliances accepted include refrigerators, freezers, air-conditioning units, water coolers, washers, dryers, dishwashers, ranges/stoves and water heaters. Electronic items accepted include computers, keyboards, monitors, printers and TVs.
