Landfill Mistake, Bag Bill Passes, Drug Take-Back

Here's what's coming up tonight on our 5 and 5:30 newscasts on Hawaii News Now ...

UH OH, LANDFILL DATA ERROR: KAILUA OUT AT #1, KAHUKU IN

Hold everything. An error has apparently been made in the site rankings for Oahu's next landfill. The Ameron Quarry location in Kailua is no longer ranked #1; a site in Kahuku is. Brooks Baehr will break down the updated list at 5.

CITY COUNCIL VOTES ON PLASTIC BAG BAN

The Honolulu City Council, today, voted on a controversial measure to ban the use of plastic grocery bags. More from Tim Sakahara at 5, including the Mayor's take on the measure.

LAST DAY FOR WAIKIKI SAND PROJECT

It's finally coming to an end, and just in time for summer. After several delays, the Waikiki Sand Replenishment Project is wrapping up. We'll show you what the area looks like now.

DRUG TAKE-BACK PROGRAM

Hawaii's war on drugs isn't limited to just illegal narcotics like meth or marijuana. Why the state also wants you to hand over your expired prescription drugs this weekend.

NEW ON KHNL AT 5:30: UPDATE ON MISSING HAWAII MAN

Tonight on Hawaii News Now at 5:30, an update to a story we first reported last week. One year ago, a Philadelphia man clicked on a website for missing children, and found a picture of himself. What happened from there, is truly amazing.

Also tonight, why today is transition day for our island weather. Guy Hagi will have your complete forecast, starting at 5.

These are just some of the stories when you join Stephanie Lum and me at 5 and 5:30.

See you then!

Aloha,

Shawn Ching
