We assessed socio-economic and environmental impacts of five candidate sites for a landfill relocation on Oahu, Hawaii. The sites had been recommended for consideration by the Mayor's Blue Ribbon Advisory Committee (MBRAC) of the city and county of Honolulu. The sites are known as the Ameron Quarry on the windward side, Maili, Nanakuli B, Makaiwa, and Waimanalo Gulch New Expansion. Our study was made at the request of Wade Wakayama, President of Ameron Hawaii.
