Pine’s Resolution Calls For Closure of the Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill

On April 23, 2015, Mayor Kirk Caldwell dedicated a new waste receiving facility at the City-owned waste-to-energy plant in Campbell Industrial Park that will divert 40,000 tons of sludge and bulky waste into clean, renewable energy.

 

Many Oahu residents and businesses have asked for the existing Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill Operation to be closed, as indicated by previous City administrators.

 

Councilmember Pine is happy to announce that today, the Public Works Committee passed Resolution 15-167, which was introduced to urge the City to expedite the closure of the Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill and the implementation of sustainable waste management practices.  Your support and testimonies are much needed at the upcoming July 8, 2015 City Council meeting at Kapolei Hale, where, with your help, the resolution will be adopted by City Council.  Feel free to call (808) 768-5001 or email kmpine@honolulu.gov to learn how you can submit testimony in support of this issue.
