Find Hawaii Garbage Dumps & Landfills Near You

Get rid of your unwanted items at dumps and landfills in Hawaii

Construction waste material

Despite more than 76% of Hawaii’s waste on some islands being diverted away from landfills, there are still millions of tonnes of waste ending up in Hawaiian dumps every year. However, combined with the massive efforts to increase recycling, the number of dumps, landfills, and transfer stations are slowly decreasing. But that doesn’t mean they’re not needed, and many parts of Hawaii are still struggling with how to properly deal with their waste. Despite all that, you’ll likely still find a dump near you, wherever you are in the state.

You’ll find dumps and landfills across the island in areas such as Kapolei, Waikoloa, Kaunakakai, Lanai City, and many more.

Commonly accepted trash at these locations include household waste like electronics, white goods, furniture, scrap metal, plastics, glassware, tires, papers, and construction material. However, some dumps have stopped accepted construction materials so please call ahead to check if they can accept whatever you’re dumping.

Also, if you want to dump something that might be dangerous or potentially hazardous, please give them a call to see if they can accept your items.

Almost all of the dumps in Hawaii are owned and operated by the local councils. However, there may be a few privately managed transfer stations around the islands as well.

Keep in mind that you may also be charged a fee for dumping your trash at any of these locations. This generally goes up and down depending on what materials your dumping and how much of it you have. Give them a quick call to double check pricing.

It’s quite common to be charged a fee to dump your trash at one of the landfills or transfer stations. If you’re unsure, just give them a quick call before you head over to avoid any unwanted fees.
