FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WAIMANALO GULCH LANDFILL TIMELINE
Managing Director Ben Lee released the following statement today:
“By expanding H-Power and developing a cutting edge recycling technology park we believe we can dramatically reduce the need for landfill space on this island. Therefore, instead of extending the life of the Waimanalo Gulch landfill by 15 years, the Mayor has instructed us to reduce the extension to only five years. But, phasing out the Waimanalo Gulch landfill can only happen with Council support.
“The Council’s CD2 budget proposal cut the Mayor’s $8 million budget for the recycling technology park down to two thousand dollars.
“Without funding to buy land for these cutting edge recycling operations, we won’t be able to reduce our landfill needs.”
