HONOLULU--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The County of Kaua‘i’s Finance Department, the Department of Public Works (DPW) – Solid Waste Division and NIC Hawaii have launched an online payment platform to accept digital landfill payments. The service went live on Feb. 1 and can be accessed via pay.ehawaii.gov/kauai.
“We’re excited to launch a landfill payment system online,” said Reiko Matsuyama, Director of Finance for the County of Kaua‘i Finance Department. “This digital solution will provide our customers with an online payment experience and continues our commitment to improve our services to our community.”
Launched on the NIC Hawaii Payment Platform, the system allows customers to either pay as a guest or as a logged-in user. Those who log in to make payments can also view their account and payment history.
In addition, the system allows the County of Kaua‘i Solid Waste Divison staff to upload billing files and retrieve payment files on demand, enabling a more streamlined process workflow. The platform also features a shopping cart, giving public users the option to pay for multiple invoices at one time.
“Our ongoing partnership with the County of Kaua‘i has enabled the creation of this digital government solution,” said Burt Ramos, NIC Hawaii General Manager. “We want to help them provide fast, efficient and safe mechanisms for their citizens to interact with the County.”
The online landfill payments service was created in partnership with NIC Hawaii, Hawaii’s digital government solutions partner.
