The Department of Environmental Management reminds members of the public that June 15 is the deadline to make an appointment to participate in an annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection event. The event is set for June 28.
The service is offered by appointment only. To make an appointment, call Cameron Chemical Corp. at (808) 695-2999 before June 15 to schedule a drop off time. Callers should prepare in advance a list of household hazardous waste items they will be dropping off. Unscheduled drop-offs will not be accepted.
A crew from Cameron Chemical will fly to Maui for this event. Residents are encouraged to schedule an appointment early to allow staff to have on hand enough equipment and supplies to safely process all of the hazardous waste dropped off during the event.
Accepted items include: aerosols, antifreeze, car batteries, household batteries, fire extinguishers, fluorescent bulbs and tubes, oil-based paint, old medications, pesticides, solvents and thermometers. If you have an item that is not listed, ask about it while making an appointment.
