Bidders sought to remove DPW oil drums

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The Department of Public Works has now opened the bid process for companies interested in cleaning up the remainder of the oil drums that sit on the Upper Tumon property. The agency is under court order to have the facility cleared as the waste has been sitting there for the past 30 years.

DPW Director Andy Leon Guerrero says he met with representatives from the General Services Agency this week to ensure that the process is moving forward for the removal of the 1,800 oil drums.  "We would definitely need a company that deals with hazardous materials that has to happen first, they have to have the facilities to do it and they have to have the capabilities of securing it at the same time," he said.

Leon Guerrero says they are looking for either an on- or off-island company who can complete the task within a 120-day time period.
