The fate of the Waimanalo Gulch Sanitary Landfill remains uncertain 15 months after the city endeavored to reach a resolution with the community group that’s fought the hardest to shutter Oahu’s only municipal dump.
Mayor Kirk Caldwell told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that the city is looking at “eliminating the need for an everyday landfill,” suggesting that the complete shutdown long sought by Leeward area residents is not likely to happen any time soon.
