Fencing, closing of recycling center questioned

It was announced recently that the recycling center at the top of Makaala Drive is to be closed the first week of April. This is a popular recycling spot for those of us who live north of Wailuku, allowing us to dispose of newspapers, cardboard, plastic milk jugs and glass bottles, keeping those things out of the landfill.

Just a month or two ago, the area fencing was completed along with a rolling, lockable access gate at a cost of hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

After the middle of April, we will have a locked-up slab of concrete. Does that make sense?

Who is in charge of removing this convenience to the citizens north of Wailuku and spending taxpayer dollars frivolously?
