Landfills and recycling centers will remain closed tomorrow. Residential curbside trash pickup on Monday will be rescheduled for Tuesday, July 28.

The County-partnered, YMCA summer youth program will continue tomorrow at War Memorial Gym and Eddie Tam Gym. The South Maui Community Park Gymnasium will remain closed, however, for cleaning and sanitization due to it being used as an emergency shelter.

“Mahalo to everyone for staying safe and sheltering in place as Hurricane Douglas passed by Maui County,” Mayor Victorino said. “We are very fortunate to not have any reported injuries or major damages, but I continue to ask our community to be cautious when leaving your home.
