Residents on Lanai are out of trash service this week and possibly next.  The island’s dump truck missed scheduled pickups on Monday and Tuesday because of a mechanical problem with the truck’s rear lift gate.

The county ordered a new part and is working to repair the truck as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, Lanai customers are asked to place their trash in sealed plastic trash bags, and take the bagged refuse to the Lanai Landfill if their container is full.

The Solid Waste Division apologizes for the disruption of service. For more information, please call the Department of Environmental Management, Solid Waste Division, at 270-7875. Callers on Lanai may dial 1-800-272-0125 and request extension 7875.
