After Hurricane Iniki, FEMA funded the construction of the Kekaha Landfill, Phase II. The landfill opened in September 1993 on state land, leased to the County of Kauai. The landfill is owned by the County and was originally constructed by Hawaiian Dredging Company. Waste Management's contract with the County of Kauai is to manage the operations of the landfill by County employees. The County workforce consists of one supervisor and 14 employees.
This facility sits on 64 acres of land, of which 32 acres make up the footprint of the lined Subtitle-D landfill itself. Kekaha averages 230 tons per day and 88,000 tons per year.
Hours of Operation: 7 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily except nine major holidays.
Closed on New Year's Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, King Kamehameha Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
