Staffing issues to cut hours at landfill

The Lanai Landfill will be closed at 1 p.m. today and Saturday because of insufficient staffing, the Department of Environmental Management’s Solid Waste Division said.

The landfill normally is open from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

The early closures, which included Thursday, are necessary for the county to ensure safe operations at the landfill and meet minimum state Department of Health operating requirements.
