Longview port to receive Hawaiian garbage

     LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) – The Port of Longview will process garbage from Hawaii heading to Washington landfills under an agreement recently reached with a shipping company.

Port officials say the deal reached with Daybreak Transportation and Rail Transfer will create more hours for local longshoremen and more work for the little-used crane.

The Longview Daily News reports the garbage, shrink-wrapped in plastic and stored in steel shipping containers, will be unloaded at the port to trucks or trains.
