Hawaii Roll-offs are coming at 4:45 and picking up refuse from Aloha Kitchen, 432 Ena Rd. The noise ordinance says 6:00 is the earliest they can come. What do we do to enforce?

Yes, we've heard many complaints about commercial activities beginning with the noise before they're supposed to. Here's a link to the "current" version of the O'ahu Noise Reference Manual http://health.hawaii.gov/irhb/files/2013/07/noiserefoahu.pdf . Although dated 2008 it is still reasonably current, although if you reach an old/unworking number you may have to verify the new one on the internet. The reference manual addresses noise from garbage collection at public schools and garbage collection by the City and County and points to who has jurisdiction. Your case sounds more like a commercial garbage collection service and the numbers provided may not apply. I'd suggest going to our website page at http://www.quieteroahu.com/reporting-noise-violations.html and contacting the Hawai'i Department of Health, Mr. James Toma. He is the Noise Section supervisor and his email and phone number are listed on that page.
Good luck. Let us know if they were (or were not) able/willing to help.
