We continue our series this week “Trashing Paradise”, taking a closer look at ‘ōpala across the islands. Today we focus on Maui, where a little more than a year ago, Mayor Alan Arakawa signed an agreement to build a waste-to-energy plant on the island. The deal would allow California-based Anaergia Services to build the Maui Resource Recovery Facility at the Central Maui Landfill. Not everyone thinks the project is the best solution for the island’s trash. Eileen Chao has more from The Maui News.
