Hawaiian Waste hearing: tipping fees, possible breach of contract

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - City Council member Ann Kobayashi says the city is giving a break to Hawaiian Waste Systems by waiving $1 million in tipping fees.

The company's plan to ship 20,000 tons of trash to the mainland recently fell through.

Tuesday at the public infrastructure meeting, Kobayashi says she'll try to find out what's going on.

The hearing will also explore whether the Hawaiian Waste should be fined for breach of contract.
