Bill creates Guam Solid Waste Authority

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - In anticipation of the return of solid waste management and operations back to the Government of Guam when the new Layon landfill closes, legislation has been introduced to create an autonomous Guam Solid Waste Authority.  Bill 35, introduced by Senator Tom Ada, would appoint the Consolidated Commission on Utilities as the governing body of the Guam Solid Waste Authority.

Ada stated, "By creating an autonomous Guam Solid Waste Authority, we can make certain this organization is provided with the necessary resources to effectively operate and manage this critical public service."  The Solid Waste Management Division of the Department of Public Works is currently being run by federal receiver Gershman, Brickner & Bratton to ensure compliance with a consent decree that calls for the closure of the Ordot Dump and the opening of a new landfill at Layon.
