Holiday schedule announced for Maui County E-Cycling program

The County of Maui Department of Environmental Management has announced the holiday schedule for E-Cycling, the county’s electronics recycling program.

E-Cycling, which is managed by Habitat for Humanity Maui under a county recycling grant from the Environmental Protection & Sustainability Division, announces the following holiday hours and closings:

• Saturday and Dec. 26, closed.

• Dec. 30 — open, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

• Jan. 2 — open, 1 to 5 p.m.

• Jan. 4 — open 9 a.m. to noon for Special Holiday Cleanup Day.

After the holidays, days and hours are expected to remain stable through June 2018. Normal hours of operation are Tuesdays, 1 to 5 p.m., and Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“We want to thank the community for being patient during closures this past summer and fall,” said Marty McMahon, E-Cycling program administrator. “E-Cycling was forced to suspend operations due to the State Electronics Program budget constraints, but we are eager to receive unwanted electronics during and after the holiday season.”

E-Cycling accepts all computers and televisions and everything that attaches to them, including printers of every size, DVD players and TVs. All phones, microwaves, audio and gaming devices ever made are also accepted.

E-Cycling is located at 901 Lower Main St. in Wailuku across from the ILWU building; look for the rainbow-colored “open” flag when the site is open. The public is asked to respect the facility by not leaving anything outside the gate when E-Cycling is closed.
