Hi guys,

Here’s the official word regarding the toilet paper shortage at City & County Parks.

Please tell all your club members, family & friends of this unfortunate situation.

Aloha all,

I am sure you have heard about the toilet paper shortage we are experiencing at our comfort stations.

Below is the announcement I issued earlier today (with a PDF version attached) and some pictures you can use for information sharing purposes. Mahalo for helping to spread the word about this unfortunate situation.

Industrial toilet paper supply issues resulting in park bathroom modifications

O‘AHU – Due to supply chain issues resulting from increased production costs and reduced raw materials, the Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) is experiencing a shortage of the industrial toilet paper commonly placed in City park bathrooms.

If possible, we ask park users to please bring in their own toilet paper for use in park bathrooms until DPR can secure a steadier supply of the industrial rolls. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your support as we work our way through this supply issue.

We urge the public to please not use “flushable” wipes, paper towels, or clothing as an alternative to toilet paper. These items do not breakdown in water like regular toilet paper and cause clogs, resulting in bathroom closures until the clog can be removed.

Remember, only two things should be flushed down the toilet: bodily waste and toilet paper. If no toilet paper is available, please throw away whatever sanitary wipes are used in the trash bins instead of flushing them down the toilet.

In addition to this public request, DPR staff are taking several measures in order to off-set the reduced toilet paper supply, including:

Stocking bathrooms and modifying dispensers for trifold, napkin-style toilet paper and/or smaller household rolls.
Coordinating amongst other City departments to inventory existing supplies and dispense accordingly.
As a last resort, bathroom stalls or entire comfort stations (bathroom buildings) may be closed if no toilet paper supply is available.
DPR maintains approximately 216 comfort stations across O‘ahu, which utilize industrial toilet paper rolls that are different from the regular, household rolls sold at local stores and super markets.

Currently DPR is receiving a fluctuating number of cases delivered at inconsistent times, creating a variable number of toilet paper cases available for park restrooms each week. For example, 106 cases of the industrial rolls are currently scheduled to be delivered for the first week of August.  However, the department may actually only receive 90 cases.   

The industrial roll shortage is compounded by the increased bathroom usage commonly experienced in public restrooms during summer months. During that time, DPR typically receives 270 cases of the industrial rolls a week. Outside of summer, that number drops to 180 cases a week.

Mahalo again to park users for their patience and understanding as we navigate through this shortage situation.

Off Topic / let's keep dentistry professional
« on: July 11, 2022, 07:32:47 AM »
Let me start off by saying that I appreciate all the work the dental profession has done in restoring and protecting my teeth. I appreciate the updates, organization, and events that they put on.

Having said that, there is something that needs to be addressed. Recently the Instagram and Facebook profile for the dental profession posted an ad that said "4 out of 5 dentists recommend sugarless gum for their patients that chew gum".  I asked a dentist friend of mine and he told me that every day before they are in their offices, they see a lot of cavities in people who chew sugared gum. The 20% of dentists that are recommending sugared gum are responsible for this.

The problem I see is that the comment was not only without merit, it was also useless and spiteful. I don't know who is posting under the dental profession (I have my suspicions) but I think this is a bad image for the organization. People can post their theories on facebook and this forum under their own accounts but I think the dental profession should remain professional. Just my two cents.

Here is a link to the facebook page

HDF is excited to introduce a new Specialty Skill Builder into the rotation for Q3; Covered Handgun. This Skill Builder will cover foundational handgun skills but with the addition of a cover garment.
Due to the nature of this Skill Builder, additional prerequisites will be required.
