Oahu Household Recycling

  • Honolulu has the most expensive electricity rates among U.S. metro areas, by far.
  • Oahu makes about 8% of its electricity from trash. It should plan to make 20% by 2020.
  • Oahu generates thousands of tons of paper, plastic, and cardboard trash. This is free fuel for the production of electricity. Instead of making power with it, we waste energy to bale it and ship it out. That’s nuts!
  • The next four slides explain what to recycle and what to throw in the trash.
