Suzanne JonesSuzanne Jones has headed Oahu’s recycling efforts since its inception in 1989.  Recovery rates as well the public’s awareness of recycling and waste-related issues have increased dramatically under her guidance.  She has developed numerous innovative educational programs, including the new Green Channel on Oceanic Cable, and the annual Tour de Trash and Discover Recycling Fairs. She is among key proponents of Hawaii’s beverage deposit program, HI-5, and is currently engaged in the rollout of the new curbside recycling program.

All of Honolulu’s recycling programs and initiatives, including legislative policy, regulatory policy, collection system and program design, and public education have been advanced by Jones’ department. With more than 25 years experience in recycling, she can talk trash with the best of them.
