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 Kauai 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.
