Strong winds force early closure for Maui landfill
Excessive strong winds at the Central Maui Landfill have caused the early closure of the landfill at 1 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, according to Maui county officials.
The landfill will close early on both days to allow staff to collect windblown debris.
The landfill is required by law to comply with strict litter control requirements.
Environmental Management officials said Tuesday that the early closures are necessary to implement control measures to avoid potential citations and/or fines from the State Department of Health.
The department apologizes for the inconvenience, and asks for the public’s understanding as workers clean up the excess litter and assess conditions for Thursday.
