City Councilmember Tom Berg sent out an email today to constituents asking for their testimony on Resolution 11-53, urging the State Department of Health to require that medical and biohazard waste be incinerated. The City Council Resolution comes after a very public incident where medical waste was found washed up on Leeward Oahu beaches. The waste came from Waimanalo Gulch landfill following severe rains in the area a few months ago.
Councilmember Berg serves council district 1, Ewa Beach to Makaha. He replaced Todd Apo via special election back in December.
The hearing will take place on Monday, February 28th at Honolulu Hale. Click here for more information on the hearing.
