More mechanical issues make mess of refuse collection

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The City's Department of Environmental Services says it was unable to fully service both green waste (green) and mixed recyclable (blue) carts this past week in parts of Leeward Oahu.

The City says they experienced mechanical issues with various sideloader trucks in the Pearl City Yard.

Gray carts were fully serviced through the end of the weekend.

The City asks residents whose green and blue carts were not serviced last week to hold them until the next collection date in two weeks.

Last weekend the City experienced the same mechanical issues which delayed both trash and mixed recyclable pick-up from Kahala to the Hawaii Kai, Newtown, Aiea, Halawa, Iroquis Point and Ewa Beach.
