Solid Waste Task Force


Solid Waste is a policy approach of reducing packaging waste by transitioning to greater reuse/refilling, with increased producer responsibility. The purpose of this working group is to develop and promote packaging waste legislation that is uniquely suited to Hawaii and will promote the transition to circular systems with an emphasis on developing reuse and refill systems for packaging. In future years may expand legislation to include other products.

2023 Hawaii Legislative Priorities

  1. Developing support and passage of a transitional solid waste program for packaging.

  2. Securing support from the business community.
