Report Title: Solid Waste; Waste or Disposal Facility; Buffer Zone; Exemptions; Artisan-scale Composting Program; Department of Health
Description: Broadens the definition of "food waste" as used in integrated solid waste management. Excludes facilities designed primarily for composting organic material such as food waste and green waste, on-site school campus food waste programs, and recycling drop-off facilities from the requirement that disposal facilities shall not be constructed, modified, or expanded without first establishing a buffer zone of no less than one-half mile from the nearest residential, school, or hospital property line. Establishes a class of artisan-scale composting operations exempt from department of health regulations to divert organic materials from Hawaii's landfills. Takes effect 7/1/2050. (SD1)
