Honolulu Mayor Pushes For Recycling

Date: January 24, 2002

Source: News Room

Honolulu Mayor Jeremy Harris has proposed a huge expansion of the city's garbage-to-energy H-Power plant during his annual "State of the City" address. The plans would save money in the long run but would cost millions and take years, Harris said. He proposes increasing the H-power plant's capacity by 50 percent to cut down on the amount of trash going into landfills: "That way, solid waste that used to go to the landfill will now be recycled or used to generate electricity," Harris said. The mayor also wants the city to build a waste separation facility at H-Power to take out un-recyclable materials to further reducing landfill needs. Harris also wants to acquire land at H-Power to create a recycling technology park where waste will eventually be turned into construction materials.
