Here's a question the city should answer if the Hawaiian Earth people don't call you back -- "Is the Hawaiian Earth location at Kapaa receiving green waste pickups now that more of the island has the automated green-waste pickups? If so, is that volume (per week, per month, however they measure) greater than the combined previous total of city pickups and homeowner dropoffs?"
Seems to me this might be the only logical reason the Hawaiian Earth people would negotiate not getting more raw material. Either that or they were trying to cut back staff or costs that come with weighing the private vehicles and having them drive around within the dump site.
Although it should be pointed out that Hawaiian Earth makes good money selling bulk compost to private customers who drive there and haul it away in their own trucks.(Which can be quite an experience.)
