Between July 2015 and October 2022 The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset and Mālama Maui Nui held “Go Green Recycling Saturday” i as part of a major effort to bring comprehensive recycling to West Maui.  Unfortunately due to extenuating circumstances this program was halted in October 2022.
The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset in collaboration with the three Rotary clubs of West Maui invite West Maui residents to participate in an online environmental survey on composting.  This survey is the first step in the three clubs’ environmental project to reduce the amount of waste going into the Maui landfill.
The three Rotary clubs – Lahaina Sunrise, Lahaina, and Lahaina Sunset – have partnered with Malama Maui Nui, a non-profit organization whose mission is to care for Maui’s environment, to undertake this environmental project.  Malama Maui Nui estimates about 50% of waste currently going into the Maui landfill is organic material – food waste and household paper – that could otherwise be composted.  Composting reduces the volume of organic material by 80% and produces a helpful soil supplement to be used in home gardens and farms.
States President Kelsey Briggs:  “Now with the help of the other two West Maui Rotary clubs, we’re turning our attention to the important first part the environmental mantra – reduce.  We’ll need West Maui residents’ help to make a difference.”
