DPW seeks cheaper option to remove tires

Guam - The Department of Public Works is looking for a cheaper alternative to remove tires from its Upper Tumon compound. Removal cost per tire was pegged at $22 apiece. The federal judge after touring DPW's grounds, ordered the cleanup of abandoned drums, hazardous materials and tires.

DPW spent more than $600,000 to remove the items but believes it will cost another $400,000 to remove the remaining tires at the compound.  The judge though found the cost to be excessive and ordered that a cost-effective solution be found.

Apparently there's not a cheap alternative, as the cost to bail and ship the tires off-island is quite high. DPW has asked the director be able to review some suggestions from the receiver and provide an update to the court on possible solutions during the next status hearing scheduled for April 13.
