Today we went on three tours of places we all contribute to in terms of trash. The first place I will talk about is H-power. At H-Power, they burn our rubbish to turn it into energy and is trying to reduce the amount of rubbish going to Waimanalo gulch by 90%. We also learned that they are trying to use our sludge to make energy. H-Power makes money by giving HECO energy and also by the trucks that come and go because they charge them a fee. Next, I’m gonna talk about RRR, at triple R, they take everything that can be recycled and sort it from glass down to the newspaper. And they always ship out the recycling to China and Oklahoma. Now I will talk about PVT, well at PVT all of the demolished concrete and wood from construction building will goes to this place. And also at this place, they have 600 acres of land for this construction landfill. At PVT and H-Power, both of the hosts talked about how they turn everything they get into energy or recycle the materials. This is important because they are finding better ways to be more energy efficient. At triple R, they talked about how they send everything off to China, to me this is important because we should start making our own recycling place down here instead of depending on others to take care of our recycling. This huaka’i is connected to me because it shows how much rubbish and recyclables I make and now I know what I can do to lower my rubbish contribution.
