At Aloha Waste, we are proud supporters of our environment and encourage all to participate in keeping our islands and earth clean! (Especially our moana!) Visit BioEnergy Hawai‘i  to see more on how we’re involved. How do you get involved? Comment below!


BioEnergy Hawaii, LLC (“BEH”) is currently developing an integrated resource recovery facility on the Big Island of Hawaii. The facility will process Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) to produce a renewable organic feedstock for use in biogas production as well as a post-recycled engineered fuel, suitable for energy conversion operations. The integrated facility design will separate and process the MSW by its material composition, allowing for the production of advanced biofuels for use in the transportation and power generation industry, as well as baseload renewable electricity. The organic recycling operations will also generate a high quality organic compost to support local farming and landscaping industries.
 
In addition to providing a variety of energy and agricultural products, the facility will recover otherwise wasted recyclable commodities and divert the majority of the island’s waste stream from conventional landfill disposal. Recycling and waste diversion is a priority for most of the world; and it is critical for all of the Islands in Hawaii, due to its limited land area and fresh water resources.

Biogas production will be accomplished by incorporating anaerobic digestion operations into the integrated facility design. The process will utilize state-of-the-art proven technology that has been developed to convert organic materials in a fully enclosed and continuous, biological process to produce an energy-rich biogas. The raw biogas can be used to generate renewable electricity or upgraded to produce renewable natural gas (RNG). The natural gas-quality RNG can be compressed to produce bio-CNG and utilized as a low-carbon alternative transportation fuel.

The facility will also produce a high calorific engineered fuel in order to maximize the energy value from the post-recycled MSW residue, such as, mixed paper, low-value plastics, textiles, and wood which cannot be utilized in the organic recycling operations. The high heating value of the engineered fuel can then be recovered through thermal energy conversion operations to generate baseload renewable electricity.

Aloha, and thank you for reading our blog. Utilizing these blogs, it is our goal to provide you with the most information possible to help you make a decision services that would fit your needs best. With that said, we are always a phone call away and more than happy to help! 

General:
Roll off containers are more commonly known to be used at construction and/or demolition job sites. Currently we provide 4 sizes of roll offs to best meet our customers needs. Wether permanent or temporary, our roll off services could be a great solution to your waste needs. Primarily utilized for hauling excessive amounts of waste at once, our roll off containers are highly durable metal to withstand the heaviest of loads. 

Landfill Regulations:
The landfills in Hawai‘i are very specific about what they will and will not accept. As a loose guideline to what you can and cannot throw away consider the following:
  • When disposing of standard mixed waste, refrain from disposing green waste, large metals, liquids, or other materials that will not burn. 
  • For construction waste, consider separating concrete and metals from other waste, this could reduce your overall costs. Also refrain from tossing any mixed waste into construction containers. 
  • As for green waste, the landfills will not accept any mixed waste or construction waste. Pallets are okay, as long as they are not painted (and of course, not plastic).
When hauling construction and demolition waste to P.V.T. (construction landfill), a clearance number to dispose of the waste is required. This can be acquired by filling out a form we provide and we will then submit it to PVT. In preparation of planning your job, please contact our office for the information needed and we will be happy to assist with this short process. 

Sizes and Dimensions:
  • 12 cubic yards - 13.5'L,  8.5'W,  5'H
  • 20 cubic yards - SOLD OUT
  • 30 cubic yards - 23'L,  8.5'W,  6.5'H
  • 40 cubic yards - 23'L,  8.5'W,  8'H

For any further information, questions, or concerns, please feel free to contact our staff.
