HI5 Educational Outreach - Redemption Center/Landfill Tours

Upon request, the County of Kaua'i Solid Waste Division in partnership with the State Department of Health offers HI5 Educational Outreach to all schools and businesses. 

Our HI5 Recycling Specialists also conduct Redemption Center and landfill tours for schools, businesses, and other organizations. These tours occur on Wednesday by appointment only. Tours include a 20 minute tour of the Kekaha Redemption Center operated by Kaua'i Community Recycling Services and a 40 minute tour of the Kekaha landfill facilitated by landfill staff. There is a short drive time between the two locations which must be factored in for interested groups.

For more information, please contact our HI5 Specialist Tawna Bensaid at (808) 241-4337 or at tbensaid@kauai.gov.

Kaua'i eWaste contest for K-8th grade

The County of Kaua‘i Department of Public Works Solid Waste Division in a partnership with the State Department of Health sponsored an Electronic Waste (or eWaste) recycling drive open to all public and private elementary and middle school classes on Kaua‘i during the month of April in 2019.

The contest was the first eWaste collection contest held on Kaua‘i and highlighted a vital free program for businesses and residents. Students from around the island were able to work with their community and show their commitment to a sustainable Kaua‘i.

Winners for 2019 are Mrs. Jana Miyazaki and Ms. Alisha Siliado's 2nd grade classes, and Mr. Joel Kawate's fourth grade class. Individual honors go to Tavesi Harris from Waimea Canyon Middle School as the top middle school student, and Courtney Faria from Mrs. Miyazaki's class as the overall top recycler.
