Maui County’s recent efforts to convert the island’s solid waste into energy will be the featured topic of discussion on the upcoming edition of the mayor’s TV show.

The waste to energy concept is part of the county’s effort to cut down on the amount of trash that ends up in the Central Maui Landfill in Puunene.

Special guest, Kyle Ginoza, the county’s environmental management director, will discuss the department’s efforts.

Mayor Alan Arakawa’s show, “Your County with Mayor Arakawa,” will be aired live on Akaku Channel 55 on Wednesday, March 6 at 7 p.m.

Viewers can ask questions by calling 873-3430. Viewers can also submit questions during the show via Twitter at @CountyofMaui and through Maui County’s Facebook page.

The show will be re-aired on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. on March 13-27.
