The county Department of Environmental Management Derelict and Abandoned Vehicle Section announces its year-round vehicle disposal assistance program begins Friday, Nov. 1.
This program will assist registered vehicle owners with properly and legally disposing of unwanted vehicles, thereby reducing the number of derelict and abandoned vehicles discarded on public roadways.
A maximum of two “junked” vehicles per registered owner per calendar year can be disposed of at no charge. The county will pay the disposal fee directly to the county’s vehicle disposal contractor. However, the registered owner is responsible for transporting the vehicle from its current location to the county’s contracted vehicle disposal facility and all costs associated with transport of the vehicle.
Registered vehicle owners are encouraged to submit their applications early as there are limited disposal appointments available each day.
Visit www.hawaiizerowaste.org/recycle/automotive/ for the application, guidelines and instructions.
For more information, contact the Derelict and Abandoned Vehicle Section at 961‐8552 during regular office hours (7:45 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) or email to VDAP@hawaiicounty.gov.
