You can depend on the best for great, affordable services.
P.F.I. is not involved in the actual recycling process; we simply transport the materials to local recycling centers. Currently, we do not offer a curbside recycling program in West Hawaii. Please make sure that your recycling is kept away from your regular trash. We do not want to take it to the landfill by mistake.
You're in great hands. Call us today!
