Staff shortage cuts landfill hours

The Lanai Landfill will close early, at 1 p.m., today through Saturday because of insufficient staffing, the county Department of Environmental Management’s Solid Waste Division announced.

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

The early closures are needed to ensure the landfill is operated safely and meets minimum state Department of Health operating requirements, the division said.
