Kauai County officials said loose mixed waste is not being accepted at the Hanapepe refuse transfer station until further notice because of mechanical problems.
The facility is still accepting bagged trash, along with green waste, scrap metal, appliances, propane tanks, used tires, used motor oil and motor oil filters, and used cooking oil.
Residents wishing to dispose of loose mixed waste can take it to the Lihue refuse station or the Kekaha Landfill.
