County of Maui Press Release
The County of Maui Department of Environmental Management announced yesterday that due to insufficient staffing on Molokai, the Molokai Landfill will be operating on a shorter schedule for several days this month.
The schedule changes will allow landfill personnel from Maui to travel to Molokai to cover the staffing shortages. The schedule changes include:
• Opening later on March 18, 19 and 21, at 9:30 a.m.
• Closing early on March 20 and 22, at 12:00 noon
This measure is being taken to ensure the safe operation of the landfill and to meet minimum State Department of Health operating requirements, as mandated by Maui County’s solid waste permit.
The Solid Waste Division apologizes for the inconvenience and thanks the Molokai community for their understanding.
