Posted May 19, 2021, 9:00 AM HST

The draft for the Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan (ISWMP) Update is now available for public review.

The ISWMP represents a roadmap for setting the County’s vision for future management of municipal solid waste. The County has been working with its consultant, JACOBS, to develop the draft ISWMP Update. The County Administration, Public Works staff, and a Solid Waste Advisory Committee appointed by Mayor Derek SK Kawakami comprised of Kaua‘i residents, business, and government representatives provided input for the plan.

The ISWMP is updated every 10 years. It provides information on current solid waste management practices and offers recommendations and associated costs for program improvements.

The ISWMP Update has been posted on the County website and is available for public review here. Comments on the ISWMP Update can be submitted in writing to solidwaste@kauai.gov. The public will have 60 days to review the document and provide comments on the ISWMP Update. A virtual public hearing on MS Teams is planned for Thursday, June 17, 2021. The County will issue a separate notice with details on the public hearing.
