                                Mililani High School students remain dedicated to the cause of reducing food waste. The science students maintain a composting program but can compost only a portion of the 30 to 100 pounds of food waste produced at the school every day. Science students Miki Haitsuka, left, Alastair Domingo and Jayda Sakoda pulled back the tarp over a thermal compost pile May 20.

The bill, which did not pass, was introduced by state Rep. Trish La Chica (D, Mililani-Waipio Gentry-Koa Ridge).
