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 opens, legislation has been introduced to create an autonomous Guam Solid Waste Authority.  Bill 35, introduced by Senator Tom Ada, proposes to make the Consolidated Commission on Utilities the governing body of the new entity.  

The legislation also proposes some timelines, of which the senator said, "Upon enactment the bill would mandate that the CCU begin dialoging with the receiver currently so we can begin those preliminary discussions for how a handover would be accomplished, whatever it takes to hand over those responsibilities."

The bill also seeks to make the actual transition whenever the District Court determines that the consent decree has been fulfilled.
