Honolulu Landfill Continues To Incite Controversy

Ongoing controversy over the location of Honolulu, Hawaii's next landfill took a new turn recently when four members of a landfill committee resigned over a decision to remove the existing Waimanalo Gulch landfill area from a list of five possible sites. The city had proposed expanding the Waimanalo Gulch site by fifteen years, but in the face of public protest backed off and changed that to five years. The landfill's current permit expires in 2008, though there is apparently space for another 20 to 30 years' worth of waste at the Waimanalo Gulch site.
