City puts limits on bulky item pickups

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The city's Department of Environmental Services collects bulky items monthly; however, the Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill is closed and not accepting waste at this time, so city bulky trucks will be picking up only items that can be delivered to recycling companies and H-POWER.
Items the city will not be picking up are carpets, chairs, sofas, mattresses, box springs, toilets and home renovation debris.  Please hold all of these items and do not place them curbside until further notice.  Bulky trucks will only pick up metal appliances.
The following areas are scheduled to be serviced the week of Jan. 17-22, which are the third Monday and third Wednesday of the month:
