The 1960-61 Local Agenda Item - Annual Report
"Study of Waste Disposal and Recommendations for the most Effective and economical methods to be used by the City and County of Honolulu."
In three unit meetings the committee tried to inform members on refuse disposal methods and Honolulu's special refuse problems. Members also visited the composting plant at the Oahu State prison.
The committee tried to help the city by making a survey among the 20 largest private and government landholders inquiring about the availability of suitable land for sanitary landfill operations.
A summary of encouraging answers was made available to city officials concerned with refuse. However it appears that they have not followed up our survey with any serious investigation.
In March, 1961, the Honolulu League sent conclusions and recommendations in the area of refuse disposal to the Mayor and City Council, as well as to all other officials concerned with refuse disposal problems.
We will follow developments in the area of refuse disposal probably under a "Continuing Responsibility" item.
At present the League is supporting legislation sponsored by the Department of Health to define the government agency responsible for the cleaning of beaches from seaweed and debris and to provide funds for the work.
Members of our committee were Helen Fine, Julia Tuscho, Ruth Myers, Lilian Fortess, Peggy Gressit.
