Honolulu Replaces 31 Refuse Trucks

March 23, 2012

HONOLULU – Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle announced March 22 that the City placed 20 new refuse collection trucks into service throughout the island of Oahu. In late 2011, a large number of older refuse side-loaders experienced various mechanical problems, forcing some routes to skip mixed recyclable or green waste pickup, according to a release from the City. Regular pickup was not affected.

The McNeilus side-loader trucks are based at five refuse yards. An additional 11 trucks have been ordered and will be placed in service later this year.

 “These new vehicles will help maintain the recycling and green waste initiatives that are making our island more sustainable, along with providing reliable refuse collection,” Carlisle said.
