Solid waste incinerator would relieve landfill

I again am responding to Maui’s solid waste problem after reading a letter on April 9.

While living on Maui during Ms. Linda Lingle’s reign as mayor, I submitted to the County Council, and even had a face-to-face talk to then-Council Member Kimo Apana, a detailed catalog about a solid waste incinerator.

It was a win-win project. The project would be financed by bonds and paid off by the excess power sold to Maui Electric and by fees paid to dump. If it was implemented then, it would be running now and the landfill would not have the problems it has now.
