Solid Waste

Honolulu, HI: (Dec-12-07) The state Department of Health brought charges against Waste Management of Hawaii Inc., the City and County of Honolulu, alleging that there were solid waste violations at the Waimanalo Gulch Landfill. The allegations included the operations, monitoring and reporting at the landfill relating to groundwater, daily cover for municipal solid waste and ash, leachate, asbestos and gases. The suit claimed that Waste Management, which manages the landfill, was liable for the violations.

As part of a settlement reached, Waste Management agreed to pay $520,000 and create funding of over $1 million for supplemental environmental projects, including the development of a community drop-off center for refuse and recyclables at the landfill. Officials stated that though the violations have been corrected, Waste Management's solid waste management permit is under a public review process. [PACIFIC BUSINESS NEWS: WASTE VIOLATIONS]
