The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset and Mālama Maui Nui launched the “Go Green Recycle Saturday” in July 2015 as part of a major effort to bring comprehensive recycling to West Maui.

Once a month (usually the third Saturday), from 9:00am to 12:00pm, residents will be able to bring a wide variety of recyclables to bins set up in the parking area of the Lahaina Civic Center. Recyclables will be accepted at no charge, and there will be no redemption payments for HI-5 recyclables dropped off at this site. Consider your HI-5 recyclables as a donation to help support this volunteer-driven event! Please note: There is a $5 fee to drop off regular-sized (or smaller) vehicle tires. There is no profit made on this fee; the full amount is paid to the drop off center in Kahului per their processing charge.

Volunteers will accept scrap metal, bicycles, appliances (working or not), lawn mowers, vehicle and boat batteries, CDs/DVDs, HI-5 cans and bottles, plastics 1 & 2, newspaper, cardboard, computers, televisions, printers, gaming consoles, photo/video cameras, and microwaves.

Items NOT accepted include propane tanks, green waste, furniture, trash, motor oil, hazardous fluids/waste, paint, vehicles. As of July 2016, we can no longer accept cooking oil, household batteries, glasses, hearing aids, and books. Not sure if your item will be accepted? Call to ask, 877-2524, or email

“Go Green Recycle Saturday” will supplement the two current recycling locations in West Maui: the County’s Refuse & Recycling Center at Olowalu and Lahaina International Market’s HI-5 recyclables at the Lahaina Redemption Center (275 Lahainaluna Road). Verify their hours of operation in the Maui County Recycling Guide or by calling 270-7880.

These recycling events are made possible by our partners at The County of Maui, Malama Maui Nui and 5A Rent-A-Space.
