WAILUKU – The Molokai Landfill has been reopened after workers discovered a suspected explosive device yesterday.
In response, the Maui Police Department contacted the military and an explosive ordnance unit detonated the object today. The “all clear” was given prior to 10:30 a.m. for the landfill to reopen to the public.
The Maui County Department of Environmental Management, Solid Waste Division, thanks our Molokai residents for their patience during this matter. No word on a possible source from which the device came.
