Central Maui Landfill fee now $4

The cost of residential dumping at the Central Maui Landfill went up $1 to $4 per visit on July 1, the county Department of Environmental Management said last week.

The extra dollar is expected to raise $117,000 for the fiscal year, raising the overall total received by the fee to $468,000, said department Director Eric Nakagawa. The money will help pay for operations and maintenance at the landfill.

Accepted forms of payment are cash, credit card or debit card. There is a 2.35 percent processing fee added to credit/debit card payments.

All other landfills in the county are free for residents.
