Oahu recycling rates and landfill diversion are above the national average and ranks among the top cities in the country. 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.
