Company's reinspection could kickstart cleanup

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Sinajana Vice-Mayor Robert Hoffman says they are now waiting for the Guam Environmental Protection Agency to re-inspect Bali Steel's violations in order to kick-off the Islandwide Abandoned Vehicle and White Goods Cleanup Project. The company has been hired to collect the items and ensure that they are properly disposed.

Hoffman says he has met again with the Governor's Office on the issue, and is hoping the project can move forward this month.

In the meantime, private companies such as FSM Recycling have offered free services to take in the items, as Hoffman tells KUAM News, "People want to collect the metals and get it off of here, so we're really happy that other companies have stepped to the plate. The companies that were brought up today at the meeting were also companies that have contacted Bali Steel to work with them and their also listed as some of the subcontractors."

The island's mayors also plan to meet with other companies that have said they will pay for the abandoned items.
