Guam - Acting Public Works Director Jesse Garcia says they met with the solid waste management team yesterday regarding the cleanup of the drums, tires, and abandoned vehicles at the Upper Tumon compound. Garcia says they continue to work out details with a solid waste contractor to secure funds for the cleanup.

He anticipates the final report of how they will remove the items this week.  "The issue with the cleanup is going to be the oil asphalt that's in the drums that have been deteriorating, that's going be the hardest part to clean up. As far as the vehicles and tires, that should be taken care of," he explained.

The U.S. District Court of Guam has given DPW a one-month timeframe to cleanup the waste, and tomorrow the department must submit a progress report to the court and do so every 15th of the month.
