anaerobicindigestionThe County of Maui is now poised to make a comprehensive and long lasting change in the way we handle our solid waste resources.  These resources, which include green waste from Maui homes, businesses, resorts and hotels;  sewage sludge from our wastewater treatment plants; used cooking oil and other “fats, oils and greases”;  all serve as the basis for production of value-added products by entrepreneurs here on Maui.  Others, chiefly beverage containers eligible under the “HI5” program, provide recycling companies, individuals and community organizations with direct cash payments.  Now, if a plan initiated by the Arakawa administration is implemented, our entire waste stream will be diverted into a “waste to energy” program.  Maui Recycling Group has many questions about this plan.  Learn more about our concerns here.
