Temporary Closure of County H5 Redemption Centers Because of Late State Handling and Reimbursement

News Release from County of Maui, Jan 17, 2018

Wailuku, Maui - All County HI5 redemption centers operated by Aloha Recycling will be temporarily closing today, January 17, 2018. This includes the four County HI5 redemption center locations in Kihei, Makawao, Haiku, at UHMC and Aloha Recycling’s’ private facility in Kahului across from Island Grocery Depot. County drop boxes will still be available for nonrefundable items such as cardboard, newspaper, glass, food cans and plastics #1 & #2 with necks that have been rinsed clean.

Customers who do not wish to wait for these locations to reopen may take their HI5 recycling in for refunds to Aloha Shell (Kahului), Reynolds Recycling (Kahului), Maui Disposal (Wailuku) and the Lahaina Redemption Center. Closures will begin today, January 17, 2018. Aloha Recycling expects to reopen all five centers by tomorrow afternoon or by Friday, January 19, 2018.

The HI 5 redemption program is run by the State and the County allows their vendor to operate in our County redemption centers.  This closure is due to a delay in payments from the Department of Health. Once the back payments have been received, operations will resume as normal.
