Status of County Curbside Recycling

Curbside recycling service is currently not offered to residents by the County as part of refuse service. In order for the County to provide island wide curbside recycling service to residents, a Materials Recovery Facility (otherwise known as a MRF) needs to be constructed on Kaua‘i. A MRF contains a sort line to separate co-mingled recyclables  and would enable the County to collect all types of food and beverage containers, as well as mixed paper and cardboard in a single blue recycling bin at your curb. The County does not have plans to construct a MRF at this time.
