WAILUKU, Maui – E-Cycling, the county-sponsored electronics recycling program, has been temporarily closed at Molokai’s Naiwa Landfill until Jan. 2, 2019.
Changes to the e-waste market, which involves collecting, shipping and processing electronic equipment such as computers, monitors, printers and TVs, are cited as the reason behind the closure.
“E-waste markets have changed and immediately affect how e-waste can cost-effectively be collected and shipped from Molokai to be processed on the Mainland,” said Kevin Collins, owner of E-Cycling Maui and the county’s new E-Cycling program contractor.
Molokai residents will again be able to recycle computers, monitors, printers and TVs with the program starting Jan. 2, 2019. Until then, people can choose to hold items until E-cycling reopens or dispose of them at the landfill.
