Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle says a company with botched plans to ship Oahu trash to the mainland has delivered its last bale of garbage to the city.

The final 11 tons from Hawaiian Waste Systems went to the city’s H-POWER plant, which generates electricity by burning trash, on Tuesday.

The company had a contract to ship Honolulu trash to a landfill in Washington state near an Indian reservation. But legal hurdles and a protest by the Yakima Indian Nation blocked the plan. 

Hawaiian Waste had been storing 20,000 tons of garbage it had planned to ship to Washington state in piles of massive shrink-wrapped bales at Campbell Industrial Park. An agreement with the city instead allowed it to send the trash to H-POWER and Waimanalo Gulch landfill.
