Scrap-metal scavengers should be reported to HPD

By June Watanabe

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Sep 11, 2012

~~<p>Question: What&rsquo;s the city&rsquo;s bulky item collection coming to? During the recent collection week in East Hono&shy;lulu, the crew was two guys with a pickup truck and trailer. They left things like furniture and a TV set. Previously, two guys in a van only picked up items like an old washing machine, leaving behind other items that weren&rsquo;t collected until a week later. One of my neighbors thinks these are just scavengers. If so, is it legal?</p>
<p>Answer: The Department of Environmental Services hasn&rsquo;t received many complaints from the public about this, but its employees are well aware of &ldquo;unauthorized bulky item collectors.&rdquo;</p>
