Fifty-eight junk vehicles were successfully removed last month from Hawaiian Ocean View Estates.
Hawaii County’s Derelict and Abandoned Vehicle Section held its first rural-area junk vehicle collection event in HOVE on July 17-18.
These events are intended to make disposal of unwanted vehicles from private properties more accessible and convenient to the community by reducing the distance residents needed to travel for disposal of their junk vehicles, according to the county.
All the vehicles collected are being transported to the county’s contracted recycling/disposal facility.
The drop-off site was located within HOVE.
The Derelict and Abandoned Vehicle Section also teamed up with the county’s Vehicle Registration and Licensing Section at the HOVE Community Center so residents could pre-register at two pop-up events.
