The Pāhoa Transfer Station is a transfer station where you can drop off household trash and recycling. The facility operates a small pavilion where you can buy household items like kitchenware and handbags. People seem to drop off furniture here often, so wait around on a weekend and you might get a good deal.

In late 2014 and early 2015, a lava flow burned through the Pāhoa Transfer Station fence and advanced to the asphalt before stopping just short of any structures.
