Take your trash to the central Maui landfill for just $3

The Maui County Landfill just implemented a new fee to drop off your household trash, and it's only $3.  It used to be a free service, but I don't think this new fee is too steep. For now they need you to pay in cash, but by October 2017 they plan to accept credit and debit cards.  It's still free at the other locations: Hana (on Maui); Lanai Island; and Molokai Island. 

This is kind of big news here, since it was a free service for almost forever.  For a short time a decade or more ago, they started charging $10 which resulted in lots of people just dumping their trash by the roadsides and in the cane fields.  The end result cost the County a lot of money to clean up and they waived the fees until this summer.  I guess they decided $3 is more affordable and every bit helps to cover the costs, since it's not cheap to run a landfill these days.  The remodeled facility is very well run and you just have to back up to a row of dumpsters and drop off your unwanted stuff.  No more driving up to the stinky mountain of trash and getting your shoes dirty!

Household curbside trash collection will cost you $324 per year, which is also subsidized.  You need to pay in advance and get billed twice a year.  In some locations you can pay extra and have them pick up your recyclables and green waste too, with the 3 Can Plan.  Learn more about Maui trash collection services here.

Look how easy and efficient it is!  At the landfill you can also drop off your green waste to be composted, and take in your recyclable items like flattened cardboard, glass containers, and recyclables.

Let's all do our part to keep Maui beautiful, and don't litter the roadsides and parks.
