Oahu recycling rates
are above the national average and Honolulu ranks among the top cities in the country in landfill diversion
. By employing both recycling and waste-to-energy, more than 70% of Oahu's municipal solid waste is being diverted from Waimanalo Gulch Landfill. Expansions to the H-POWER waste-to-energy plant and increases in recycling will further decrease what goes to landfill.
