FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT
PVT published a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the PVT Integrated Solid Waste Management Facility Relocation project (Proposed Action). The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) determined that the Final EIS is acceptable under the procedures established in Chapter 343, HRS.
PVT ISWMF RELOCATION
PVT owns and operates the only publicly accessible, commercial construction and demolition (C&D) recycling and solid waste management facility on Oahu. The facility is part of the City & County of Honolulu’s solid waste management plan and provides a critical service to the construction industry and to City & County of Honolulu emergency and disaster response efforts.
PVT recycles and reuses approximately 80% of the C&D debris received. While recycling has extended the life of the landfill, the construction boom on Oahu has generated more C&D debris than anticipated. PVT is therefore initiating landfill closure activities in accordance with its permit. The PVT facility closure would leave Oahu without a C&D landfill and materials recovery facility.
PVT proposes to:
- Relocate its C&D debris receiving, recycling, and disposal operation to a parcel, owned by a PVT affiliate, on the opposite side of Lualualei Naval Road from its current location.
- Upgrade its recycling operations by installing two materials recovery and processing lines.
- Install renewable energy facilities (a gasification unit or anaerobic digestion system and photovoltaic panels) to power its operations.
The relocation will allow uninterrupted C&D debris management focused on the diversion of 80% of construction debris from the landfill through reclamation, recycling, and reuse.
