KPUA is reporting that the Hawaii Land Use Commission has ordered the Waimanalo Gulch Landfill closed by July 31, 2012. Honolulu officials are appealing to have the date pushed back because they do not have an alternate site for a new landfill. Meanwhile, residents have been complaining about foul odors from the landfill on their properties.
