Currently Heart & Soul Organics located on the north shore of Kaua‘i is the only composting facility that is permitted to take food waste that will come along with the compostable plates, utensils, and other items that will be used at an event.
If Zero Waste Kaua‘i is not available to coordinate the event, please contact Heart & Soul Organics directly. The owner Mark Freeman allows self-hauling to his site or he can bring down a bin that you can load up your compostable material in to. Depending on the size of the event there may be a nominal charge for self-hauling, otherwise there will be an overall charge to haul a bin to the event location and back. Material must be free of all non-compostable material.
Compostable utensils and other products require a commercial composting site like Heart & Soul to properly compost. The County's home composting system and other units that you might purchase for home use would not be able to break down the material sufficiently.
