City wants to toughen illegal-dumping penalty - Hawaii News

There are 2 comments on the Honolulu Star-Bulletin story from Sep 9, 2009, titled City wants to toughen illegal-dumping penalty - Hawaii News. In it, Honolulu Star-Bulletin reports that:

QUESTION: Can our good mayor send out brochures on how our city bulky-items system works, or spend some of our tax dollars to put it on TV on prime time? In Aina Haina, and I presume other areas, bulky items appear a week or sooner after a scheduled pickup has been made.

Don't forget to look at the City & County. How many complaints have they received for not picking up bulky items when scheduled or as promised? What then?

The best way to make sure that your bulky item pickup schedule is observed - and bear in mind the City's Enviornmental Services does allow for up to five working days after the scheduled date - is to file a formal complaint with both your City Councilmember as well as with your Neighborhood Board.

Another place to consider speaking up about your concerns is the Public Infrastructure Committee's monthly meetings. Each month, there is a section on the Agenda for the Director of Environmental Services to report to the Committee. At the conclusion of Tim Steinberger's presentation, then raise your concerns.

Unfortunately, I don't know how receptive the new chair, Ann Kobayashi, will be towards your issues. However, her predecessor, Duke Bainum, was very open to suggestions and incorporated a number of them into specific bills, resolutions or budget items.

In her earlier terms in office, Kobayashi was more focused on looking for alternative waste management systems rather than taking on community issues such as illegal dumping.
