Itoman City gives up on a joint waste treatment plant

Date Posted: 2010-06-03

After more than a year of wrangling that produced no results, Itoman City and Shimajiri Village have given up and signed an independent agreement for waste management services with an Uruma City company.

The Southern Clean Center Promotion Committee had been established several years ago, with the intent of six southern Okinawa communities jointly entering into an Okinawa Municipalities Garbage Treatment Plant plan. Yonabaru Town Mayor Kunio Furugen headed the operation, and last year in May set up plans for the new plant. The trouble was, none of the six municipalities in the deal wanted the plant built on their land. The municipalities fought each other over where to build a replacement for the Okinawa City Kurahama hygiene facility that had been providing them services.

The Kurahama plant gave up on the six-community panelís negotiations, and severed services with Itoman City, Tomigusuku City and Nanjo City. Itoman City was quick to react, linking with Shimajiri Village to make a garbage contract with a private company in Uruma City.
