Molokai landfill closed following discovery of possible ordnance

MOLOKAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - What appears to be an unexploded ordnance was discovered Monday at the Molokai Landfill, prompting authorities to close the landfill starting Tuesday January 14 until further notice.

The Molokai Police Department has been notified and is monitoring and securing the facility. Police contacted the military disposal unit and will notify the County when the "all clear" has been given.

At this time, there is no estimated time for returning to full service at the Molokai Landfill.

The Solid Waste Division apologizes for the inconvenience, and thanks the Molokai community for their understanding.
